The guy who directed Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth changes it up by doing a doc about three guitar gods — Led Zep's Jimmy Page, U2's the Edge and the White Stripes' Jack White. The cameras follow each of them home, let them talk shop and then put them onstage together in Los Angeles for an electrifying jam session. Does this sound like rock heaven? It is.

    “Baby I Need Your Loving”

    The Four Tops | 1964

    The Four Tops formed 11 years before the release of this ballad, their first hit on Motown. The group had just wrapped up a gig at a Detroit nightclub when Brian Holland, who wrote the song with partners Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland, invited them to Motown's studio to record into the wee hours of the night. In 2004, Holland explained how the words came to him one morning: "I was feeling very close to my wife, and thought of singing 'Baby I need your loving.' The phrase just entered my head. I felt she didn't really understand me, so I could explain how I felt through this song."
