Nick Ashford 1941-2011

Listen, baby
Ain’t no mountain high
Ain’t no vally low
Ain’t no river wide enough, baby

If you need me, call me
No matter where you are
No matter how far
Just call my name
I’ll be there in a hurry
You don’t have to worry

‘Cause 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

‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ co-written by Nick Ashford, who lost his battle with throat cancer yesterday in New York.  The work with his wife Valerie Simpson speaks for itself.

Want to hear pop perfection? Listen to these lyrics, The Funk Brothers at the peak of their powers and spot on vocals by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.  Wow.

Rest In Peace Nick…
