Nights At The Roundtable with The Temptations and their 1970 classic, just as relevant today as it was in 1970, "Ball of Confusion".
September 21, 2011

The Temptations - just as relevant in 2011 as they were in 1970.

As I was reading and watching the news tonight, this song came flying into my brain.

In 1970 the world was spinning off its axis and The Temptations offered Ball Of Confusion as a comment on the times.

2011 the world is spinning off its axis and The Temptations are still offering Ball of Confusion as a comment on the times.

It doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon.
