The Top Ten
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!

Just saw them perform Saturday. Wish they had played this entire song. It's a favorite!
Papa Was a Rolling Stone, was the first song of it's kind. It was called 'Psychedelic soul' and it was dark and lingering. The Temptations had never done anything like it before and a lot of rock band loved it. Rolling Stone actually performed it during there 1974 tour but it didn't have the same magic. This song, by far, was their greatest song.
Eleven minutes of pure funk. The bass line is heavenly.
Hard to choose. My favorite is only the strong surviveV 8 Comments
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...
This is great song but my favorite is shaky groundV 5 Comments
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!
My all time favoriteV 7 Comments
This is a very beautiful song
Switch out I know I'm loosing you for I can't get next to you
Something about this song that makes it my favorite. Beautiful mixed
I want to hear it again!V 1 Comment
It the best song they made
Just a good Ole favorite!
Norman Whitfield at his best. I like how the 5 members share the lead (Whitfield's idea) and Dennis Edwards' emotional delivery. A different side for the Temptations; the 1970s were something else!
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
My all time favorite!
Great song... I have always loved it.
Painful, plaintive and perfect
I am always singing this song
The best!V 6 Comments
I think this was the best of this ten whether it be David Ruffin or Dennis Edwards!
Soulful, powerful, hip, and cool=best song and not for the wanna bees and light hearted masses
Good enough for a Rare Earth cover
I love this song!
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.
GREAT SONG WHEN MUSIC WAS MUSIC
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
Honestly very surprised to not see this in the top 5 or 6. Like most of their work, this makes you want to just get into it, plus it's much more famous than the rest of the songs around this 7-15 level.
Class tune one of my top 10
My favorite temptation song
I love the changes in tempo of this song.
My number one temptation song of ALL time!
Jamerson really funks this song up!
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
Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talking' to you, how is this not in the top 5?
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.
This is one of the best songs ever.
Best song ever!
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.
Love this song! Great wedding song!
This is the best Christmas song even still to this day! 05-08-16
Great. Christmas. Song And to me it's sung by the very best vocal artist ever.
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.
A pure blend of vocals and a funky orchestra. The tention, the excitement, purely a masterpiece.
This song should have been one of their #1 picks! W-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l Song!
It should be number six.
Love all of their songs. But have to choose heavenly and you're my everything
I can't believe this song is so low... This song is so beautiful...
Such a great song. Truly in the spirit of the early Temptations.
Beautiful lyrics, great voices.
The song is excellent and should be on this list somewhere!
The incomparable Paul Williams leads this classic written by Smokey Robinson and Ronald White. Check out the live version it is epic!
Tempts doing their thing
Another Dynamic by David.
Holds a very special place in my heart
Next to My Girl their best song
Richard Street kills in this. The coolest slow jam the Temps ever made.
I was only 10 when I first heard this song so I missed a lot of references, but as I grew the song grew with me revealing itself just as casually as my own understanding of the world about me did. I loved the fun style, the freedom it represented, and of course I loved that booming base! One of my many favorite Temptations songs!
An iconic war protest song.
