Why Them, Why Me

The ‘Complete Motown Singles’ compilations were arranged by year. It was while going through Volume 8 that I first heard the 1968 single ‘Why Them, Why Me’ by Abdullah. You could argue it’s quite a meandering song, without any satisfying climax, but it’s certainly beautiful and definitely needs to be sent into space. Don’t you think he sounds a little like Nina Simone?
