“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This song always makes me happy!
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EaflX0MWRo - Reach Out, I'll Be There - The Four Tops, 1967 - WOWZERS! Makes ya wanna DANCE!
|"Reach Out I'll Be There" (also formatted as "Reach Out
(I'll Be There)") is a 1966 hit song recorded by the
Tops for the
label. Written and produced by Motown's main production team
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,
and on the
Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks, from September 24, 1966 to October
15. It replaced "Cherish"
The Association, and was itself replaced by "96
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.
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. 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.

FromThe Weather Channel - 10/07/16, 11:45 AM - "Hurricane Matthew":
|Hurricane Matthew Drives Storm Surge Into Northeast
Florida; Hurricane Warning Extended to North Carolina;
Dangerous Flood Threat in Carolinas, Georgia
Category 3 Matthew's center is hugging Florida's east coast.
Storm surge flooding is occurring on the northeast Florida coast.
Wind gusts over 100 mph have already been measured at Cape Canaveral.
Heavy rainfall and storm surge will combine to trigger major flooding in coastal Georgia and South Carolina.
The magnitude of the flooding in coastal South Carolina could match last October.
Matthew will then meander off the Southeast coast or near the Bahamas well into next week.
Hurricane Matthew's eyewall continues to brush parts of Florida's northeast coast with high winds and storm surge flooding, and will spread those impacts, in addition to potentially serious rainfall flooding into Georgia, South Carolina, and southern North Carolina through at least Saturday night.
Some areas near the coast in Georgia and South Carolina may see flooding comparable to last October's event.
Hurricane warnings have been extended to Surf City, North Carolina, but have now been dropped south of Cocoa Beach, Florida. This means hurricane conditions (hurricane-force winds) are expected within 36 hours. This includes locations such as Orlando, Jacksonville, Florida, Savannah, Georgia, and Charleston, South Carolina. Jacksonville had not been under a hurricane warning in 17 years, until now.
A hurricane watch has been posted north of Surf City to Cape Lookout, North Carolina, meaning hurricane conditions are possible within 48 hours.
A tropical storm warning has been hoisted north of that to includ the Outer Banks of North Carolina, as well as Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.
Wind gusts as high as 107 mph have been clocked at Cape Canaveral, Florida, prompting a rare NWS "extreme wind warning", as the hurricane's western outer eyewall scraped the Space Coast, and now the strongest winds are pummeling areas farther north including Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, with damage reported.
Matthew's precarious track in which the eyewall may scrape the coast with destructive hurricane-force winds will spread north through Saturday along the northeast Florida coast, Georgia coast, and parts of the South Carolina coast.
Storm surge flooding has already occurred along the Florida Space Coast and is spreading north.
According to the National Weather Service in Jacksonville, Florida, Friday morning, "Barrier islands are likely to be breached and it is extremely possible that new inlets will be cut off in the worst affected areas." The NWS office in Charleston, South Carolina, said Friday tide levels at both Charleston, South Carolina, and Ft. Pulaski, Georgia, could approach or even surpass those seen during the October 2015 epic flood event.
All preparations in coastal Georgia, South Carolina and southern North Carolina should be rushed to completion...
