The Four Tops followed their fine debut album with an even more magnificent second effort, The Four Tops' Second Album. They landed their first number one pop and R&B hit with "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)." There was also "Something About You," a great uptempo shouter that seemed a disappointment at number 19 on the pop charts (and number nine on the R&B charts), but didn't lack vocal authority or production genius. The album also contained "It's the Same Old Song," a tidy little number that reached number five on the pop chart and number two on the R&B chart, and had one of the greatest lyrical hooks -- and titles -- ever.
