I Can’t Help Myself By The Four Tops

Levi Stubbs, Abdul Duke Fakir, Renaldo Benson, and Lawrence Peyton began singing together in 1953 and remained together until Peyton’s death in 1997. The Four Tops were a rare group where the original members stayed together for over 40 years.

The Four Tops were an important part of the classic Motown sound of the 1960’s. “Baby I Need Your Lovin'” was their first hit but it was “I Can’t Help Myself” that made them stars.

“I Can’t Help Myself” is 2 minutes and 43 seconds of musical nirvana and topped  the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks beginning June 19, 1965.
