I ain't even got to research this one. "Baby" is an old school term of endearment that unlike other generational language, has lasted and is still a part of current usage. After a week off, I will continue my Motown emphasis on each week's theme. Here are three favorite old-school "baby" songs:
The Supremes: Baby, Baby Where Did Our Love Go?
The Four Tops: Baby I Need Your Lovin'
Smokey Robinson and The Miracles: Ooh Baby, Baby
