It’s Valentine’s Day, and the man behind some of the greatest love songs of all time is going to be within jogging distance of where you live. While Smokey Robinson’s unimpeachable credentials don’t need to be repeated here, let’s just quickly remind ourselves of some of the songs he’s given us: “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me.” “I Second That Emotion.” “Tears of a Clown.” I mean, “Tracks of My Tears,” for crying out loud! There’s probably no other human in history who has so effectively used his craft to enhance our romantic experiences, and—again—he’s going to be here on Valentine’s Day, singing to you and your sweetie. If Smokey can’t help you seal the deal tonight, you should probably see a doctor.
