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!

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.

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!

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...
