R&OBIT: Last Wednesday, Ed Townsend, who wrote Lets Get It On for Marvin Gaye. died of heart failure in Sab Bernardino. Townsend wrote numerous other hits, including What Does A Girl Do for the Shirelles, which contained the following, slightly over-optimistic, couplet:

When a boy meets a girl
That he wants for the rest of his life
He just walks right up to her
Says, "Darling please be my wife"
