Ball of Confusion, that's what the world is today, hey-hey

Yes, we did a Motown song yesterday to celebrate Martha Reeves birthday, with a contemporary cover. Today we celebrate Kevin Haskins, drummer from Bauhaus and Love & Rockets, birthday with a vintage cover of an even more vintage Motown song, The Temptations' "Ball of Confusion" written at a time of social upheaval. Originally written and recorded in 1970, it feels current today, so Kevin Haskins' birthday gave us that opportunity.
