The Top Ten

1
My Girl
Definitely their best song. Papa Was A Rolling Stone was just too long, while this song is a definate Motown HIT! This is the defination of SOUL! "I'm talkin' 'bout my girl... "
MY DAD SANG THIS TO MY MOM ON HER DEATH BED AFTER 42 YEARS OF MARRIAGE. HE STILL CAN'T HEAR IT WITHOUT TEARING UP.
This is the best song ever. I listen to it every day and its the best out of all their songs. I've watched the movie about 500 times and the weird thing is, I'm only 12 years old! I'm in love with the Temptation especially Melvin! Mm good!
[Newest]This song is just so relaxing

2Papa Was a Rolling Stone
Just saw them perform Saturday. Wish they had played this entire song. It's a favorite!
Eleven minutes of pure funk. The bass line is heavenly.
Great song, live expierence music is the best.
[Newest]Words to this song

3Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)
The way Eddie sings this is extremely wonderful, The notes he hits are incredible and the emotion behind it makes a timeless classic. This song was produced before I was born and it like the temptations will stand the test of time.
Eddie Kendricks smooth falsetto is just heavenly in this song!
Best love song ever written in my opinion, and it brilliantly compliments the Temps voice!
[newest]
This beautiful song takes me away.

4Ain't Too Proud to Beg
This is my favorite - No one like David Ruffin!
This song had great rhythm and style to it. YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY LISTEN TO IT.
This and Imagination are the two best songs ever! Not just for the voices, but the production, writing...
[Newest]Greatest song ever, love David Ruffin

5You're My Everything
This should be #1. The power, enunciation, and emotion is incredible. Also the weaving in and out of Eddie and David's voices takes me to infinite and beyond! Oops, did I get too excited? Sorry, I love this song!
I was small kid when this hit came out David fan since

6Since I Lost My Baby
This is a very beautiful song
Switch out I know I'm loosing you for I can't get next to you
David never sounded better.

7Get Ready

8The Way You Do the Things You Do

9Cloud Nine

10(I Know) I'm Losing You

The Contenders

11Ball of Confusion (That's What the World is Today)
This song is an excellent synopsis of the social climate when it was released and somewhat to this day. Should be in the top five if not the top three.
This song is an accurate synopsis of what is happening in the world today. It is timeless

12Treat Her Like a Lady
I'm old school, grew up with the original Temps. This song, gets me rocking with my cane!
I enjoy this song and would like to use it as my ringtone.
I've always Loved this kind of Music.Raised Very Well by listening to this type of Music. THEY can't B BEAT! MS Carter

13I Wish It Would Rain

14Lady Soul
This is so hidden from all their other classics its not funny, I wish this song was well known too many and any who listen to The Temptations.
I have been looking for this song or album for the longest time. The one with my lady soul on it. I really do want it is abeautful song.

15This Is My Promise
Love this song! Great wedding song!

16Silent Night

17I Can't Get Next to You
I love the changes in tempo of this song.
Jamerson really funks this song up!

18Masterpiece

19Some Enchanted Evening
Ollie (the best ever Temp) and my man Theo sets this song on fire... Great rendition
This whole album (For Lovers Only) is phenomenal. It would make a great gift! The arrangement and performance of the Classics is pure genius! Ollie Wootson has outdone himself! Do yourself a favor and check it out. You and your significant other will have quite a night!
This song needs to be bumped up, waaay up! Please check out the whole CD, "For Lovers Only". You will be hooked. David and Ollie are definitely two of the best of all time. As much as I love David's voice, I have to concede to Ollie. Miss them so much.

20Shakey Ground

21Runaway Child, Running Wild
This song should have been one of their #1 picks! W-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l Song!
