Happy Humpday Everyone! As some of you may know, it is Soul Music Wednesday! I truly believe soul music provides a spiritual experience for both the listener and vocalist alike. On Wednesdays, I like to share a featured love song and give my feedback on the record. Some of the songs will be old classics and others will be new favorites.
The song featured today is ‘Who’s Lovin You’ by The Jackson 5. The song was written by William “Smokey” Robinson and produced by Bobby Taylor. The song was released in October of 1969. Here is a link to the song below…
Who’s Lovin You’ has been recorded by many artists and groups over the years, including The Miracles, The Temptations, The Supremes, and many more. The most famous and acclaimed version however was recorded by the Jackson 5, being the only version to chart on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard R&B charts. With the incomparable Michael Jackson as the lead, and his brothers as background vocalists, The Jackson 5 were able to create a flawless recording filled with emotion and truth, as did the many groups before them.
‘Who’s Lovin You’ is a universal record that applies to both men and women alike. Following a break up or loss of someone you love, sometimes you cannot help but wonder who your ex will move on to after you. The thought alone can drive people crazy and leave you feeling sad and lonely. The idea of someone else touching or loving the person you still love is troubling in the worst sense. It is important when in a relationship to stay true to your partner; honor them, love them, and respect them, so that someone else won’t get the opportunity. There is nothing worse than the feeling of regret, so I try my best not to put myself in positions to later regret mistakes in love.
