- Walter Winchell
(07 Apr 1897 - 20 Feb 1972)

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reach_Out_I%27ll_Be_There:

"Reach Out I'll Be There" (also formatted as "Reach Out (I'll Be There)") is a 1966 hit song recorded by the Four Tops for the Motown label. Written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland,[1] the song is one of the most well-known Motown tunes of the 1960s and is today considered The Tops' signature song. It was the number one song on the R&B charts for two weeks,[2] and on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks, from September 24, 1966 to October 15. It replaced "Cherish" by The Association, and was itself replaced by "96 Tears" by Question Mark & the Mysterians. Rolling Stone later ranked this version #206 on their list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. This version is also currently ranked as the 45th best song of all time, as well as the #3 song of 1966, in an aggregation of critics' lists at acclaimedmusic.net.[3]

The track also reached #1 in the UK Singles Chart, becoming Motown's second UK chart-topper after The Supremes hit #1 with "Baby Love" in late 1964.[4]

Lead singer Levi Stubbs delivers many of the lines in the song in a tone that straddles the line between singing and shouting,[1] like he did in 1965's "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)".

This song differs markedly from the Four Tops' earlier efforts, due to the highly-contrasting shifts between minor and major, and also major and augmented chords.[citation needed] These contrasting tonal shades form the hook for which the song is so well known. The Four Tops would rely on this formula for several subsequent releases.

Reach Out, I'll Be There

Written by
Holland-Dozier-Holland

Recorded by The Four Tops, 1966


Now if you feel that you can't go on (can't go on)
Because all of your hope is gone (all your hope is gone)
And your life is filled with much confusion (much confusion)
Until happiness is just an illusion (happiness is just an illusion)
And your world around is crumbling down, darlin'
Reach out, come on, girl, reach on out for me
Reach out, reach out for me
I'll be there with a love that will shelter you
I'll be there with a love that will see you through

When you feel lost and about to give up (to give up)
'Cause your life just ain't good enough (just ain't good enough)
And you feel the world has grown cold (has grown cold)
And you're drifting out all on your own (drifting out on your own)
And you need a hand to hold, darlin'
Reach out, come on, girl, reach out for me
Reach out, reach out for me
I'll be there to love and comfort you
And I'll be there to cherish and care for you

I'll be there to always see you through
I'll be there to love and comfort you
I can tell the way you hang your head (hang your head)
You're not in love now, now you're afraid (you're afraid)
And through the tears you look around (look around)
But there's no peace of mind to be found (no peace of mind to be found)
I know what you're thinking,
You're alone now, no love of your own, but darlin'
Reach out, come on, girl, reach out for me
Reach out, reach out.......... just look over your shoulder
I'll be there to give you all the love you need
And I'll be there; you can always depend on me
I'll be there to always see you through
I'll be there to love and comfort you
