life in and around NYC is insane

Guess where I'm going tonight?

I won two tickets to see Smokey Robinson at Westbury Music Fair (or whatever they're calling it these days.) Small venue, only 3,000 seats, theater in the round so there are no bad views.  We also get VIP parking and admission to the VIP club.

The best of Motown right here on Long Island. It's going to be a fun evening. 

Debonair lullabies in melodies revealed
In deep despair on lonely nights
He knows just how you feel
The slyest rhymes - the sharpest suits
In miracles made real
Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night
You know you're right just to hold her tight
He soothes it right - makes it outtasite
And everything's good in the world tonight!
When Smokey sings - I hear violins
When Smokey sings - I forget everything
As she's packing her things
As she's spreading her wings
The front door might slam
But the back door it rings
And Smokey sings... he sings
Elegance in eloquence - for sale or rent or hire
Should I say - yes I match his best
Then I would be a liar
Symphonies that soothe the rage
When lovers' hearts catch fire
Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night
You know you're right just to hold her tight
He soothes it right - makes it outtasite
And everything's good in the world tonight!
When Smokey sings - I hear violins
When Smokey sings - I forget everything
As she's packing her things
As she's spreading her wings
Smashing the hellWith the heaven she brings
Then Smokey sings... he sings
Luther croons
Sly's the original - originator
James screams
Marvin was the only innovator
But nothing can compare
Nothing can compare
When Smokey singsWhen Smokey sings - I hear violins
When Smokey sings - I forget everything
As she's packing her thingsAs she's spreading her wings
She threw back the ring
When Smokey sings...Smokey sings...Smokey sings...
