Nomination- Smokey Robinson
I will build you castle with a tower so high it reaches the moon...a classic lyric from just one of the over[500]songs written by the lyricist that Dylan himself called-America's greatest living poet, from his days with The Miracles and his many hits.. Bad Girl- Way Over There-I'll Try Something New- Mickey's Monkey- You Really Got A Hold On Me-I Second That Emotion-Tears Of A his prolific songwriting for others Motown Artist-My Guy[Mary Wells]..My Girl[The Temptations]..I'll Be Doggone[Marvin Gaye]..Don't Mess With Bill[The Marvelettes]..Malinda[Bobby Taylor An The Vancouvers...named a Motown Vice President in his early twenties, and let's not forget his solo career...A Quiet Storm- Crusin- Coincidently- Being With You- Holly- Baby Come Close- Blame It On Love.. heck even his B-side were awesome...Fork In The Road.. Would I Love You.. You Must Be Love.. Give Her Up, any conversation of songwriting should begin with Smokey who is unmatched in conveying the emotions of-falling in love[My Love For You]- losing love[Ooh Baby Baby] or even love with a touch of humor[That's What Love Is Made Of]]perhaps the best poet since Shakespere himself, when it comes to the lyrics of love put to music only one name to remember...William Smokey Robinson!!
