Month O’ love: Ain’t no mountain high enough

This weekend I experienced severe apathy for blogging, I didn’t post on my blog or visit any blog for that matter. Anyway I’m back with a song by my absolute favourite male vocalist, the one and only Marvin Gaye… Sometimes I love Luther Vandross almost as much as I love Marvin but I only need to listen to “I heard it from the grapevine” for my brain to reset.

Today’s song is a classic love song that has been covered by countless artistes including my Lionel Richie, Diana Ross, Amy Winehouse, Michael Bolton and Jennifer Lopez. It was written by the song writing duo Ashford and Simpson (husband and wife), those guys wrote plenty Motown staples and even wrote Chaka Khan’s “I’m every woman” which was eventually covered by Whitney Houston.

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” (with Tammi Terrell)
Listen baby, ain’t no mountain high,
Ain’t no valley low, ain’t no river wide enough baby
If you need me call me, no matter where you are,
No matter how far; don’t worry baby
Just call my name; I’ll be there in a hurry
You don’t have to worry,

Oh baby there ain’t no mountain high enough,
Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you babe

Remember the day I set you free
I told you you could always count on me darling
From that day on, I made a vow,
I’ll be there when you want me,
Some way, some how

Oh baby there ain’t no mountain high enough,
Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you babe

Oh no darling
No wind, no rain
Or winters cold can stop me baby, no no baby
‘Cause you are my goal
If you’re ever in trouble;
I’ll be there on the double
Just send for me, oh baby, ha

My love is alive
Way down in my heart
Although we are miles apart
If you ever need a helping hand,
I’ll be there on the double
Just as fast as I can
Don’t you know that there

Ain’t no mountain high enough,
Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you babe

Don’tcha know that there
Ain’t no mountain high enough,
Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
Ain’t mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough

When I listen to this song I think of my family, my brothers and parents. How much they’ve given me all these years, how they’ve believed in me and been proud of me. I’m dedicating this song to them…
