R.I.P. Lieber and Ashford

Each of them was half of a great, great songwriting team - Jerry Lieber with Mike Stoller, and Nickolas Ashford with Valerie Simpson. They both died today, so it seems only fitting to pay tribute with a 7-song perfect playlist of some of their greatest hits.

"Hound Dog," Lieber and Stoller

"Ain't No Mountain High Enough," Ashford and Simpson

"Kansas City," Lieber and Stoller

"California Soul," Ashford and Simpson

"Love Potion No. 9," Lieber and Stoller

"Let's Go Get Stoned," Ashford and Simpson

"Stand By Me," Lieber and Stoller

This is such a sad day for music. A pair of gifted and talented songwriters passing virtually at the same time. May they both rest in peace.
