My Girl 45 by The Temptations

If you play me “My Girl” by The Temptations, I’ll follow you anywhere.

The song was originally written by Smokey Robinson for his own group, The Miracles. After the Temptations heard the song backstage at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, they pestered Robinson to let them record it.

Robinson finally gave the song to them but he chose David Ruffin to sing the lead for the first time with the group.

The Temptations recorded the song Dec. 21, 1964 and by early 1965 it had reached the number one spot on the American singles charts.

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE ranked it as the 88th best song of all time which I believe is to low.
