Did you know that in[1962]A group called[The Pirates]recorded a song called[Mind Over Matter]which flopped badly...who were The Pirates? none other than The Temptations, except for that one song which was stolen from[ Nolan Strong].

It's tough to pick a "favorite", tomorrow it will be something else, but, for now, has to be "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" (Sheet man) Lotsa dancers when we played it (poorly).
I like this version:

Finally someone asked a tough question.

Just my imagination

My Girl

Treat her like a Lady

And

Papa was a rolling stone


Mix order as you please!

I first heard this song when my high school had a noon-hour lip-synch battle, and the guys who won wore matching suits and did this number with all of its moves.

There’s some great songs: I Can’t Get Next to You, Papa Was a Rolling Stone.

But what can you pull off with an average singer and an open stage band?

“Get Ready!” in Em.

the Temptations have long been on of my favorite vocal bands, I’d be hard pressed to pick a favorite song…that’s like asking what’s your favorite Beatles song or you favorite Rolling Stones song. Maybe I could pick one song from each of the vocalists, but then why bother, there are so many great tunes.

Too many!! No way I could pick one. Depends on my mood.

Love the LP version of "Papa was a Rolling Stone", nearly 12 minutes of bad-assery.
