Top 10 Best Temptations Songs

Don't worry!! I know there are so many to choose from. If your favorite isn't listed add it!!
The Top Ten
1 My Girl

This is the best song ever. I listen to it every day and it's 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!

When I was a teen, I fell asleep listening to My Girl and woke up to My Girl one night. It stuck in my head. I am 65 and still sing it. Me and My wifes favorite song of all times.

WOW! That has been my favorite song for years! I remember hearing it in the 60's and it has remained my number one favorite ever since.

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... "

2 Papa Was a Rollin' Stone

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.

Just saw them perform Saturday. Wish they had played this entire song. It's a favorite!

I like "My Girls", but I LOVE this one! Someone called it too long, but if you love it, it's not long enough!

Opps! I made a typo in that last comment. It's My Girl, not My Girls! Thanks for correcting that before you post my comment!

3 Ain't Too Proud to Beg

This and Imagination are the two best songs ever! Not just for the voices, but the production, writing...

This is my favorite - No one like David Ruffin!

Best in the world no one can sing like David Ruffin!

My girl is awesome

4 Just 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.

Best love song ever written in my opinion, and it brilliantly compliments the Temps voice!

Eddie Kendricks smooth falsetto is just heavenly in this song!

This beautiful song takes me away.

5 I Can't Get Next to You

My number one temptation song of ALL time!

I love the changes in tempo of this song.

6 Since I Lost My Baby

Something about this song that makes it my favorite. Beautiful mixed

David never sounded better.

I want to hear it again!

7 The Way You Do the Things You Do
8 Cloud Nine

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!

Just a good Ole favorite!

9 I Wish It Would Rain

Great song... I have always loved it.

Best song ever period!

I love this song!

10 You'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!

My all time favorite!

The Contenders
11 I Want a Love I Can See
12 (I Know) I'm Losing You

I think this was the best of this ten whether it be David Ruffin or Dennis Edwards!

I love this song!

13 Treat Her Like a Lady

I'm old school, grew up with the original Temps. This song, gets me rocking with my cane!

14 Get Ready

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.

15 Ball 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

Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talking' to you, how is this not in the top 5?

16 Lady 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.

This is one of the best songs ever.

Best song ever!

17 This is My Promise

Love this song! Great wedding song!

18 Silent Night

Great. Christmas. Song And to me it's sung by the very best vocal artist ever.

19 Some Enchanted Evening

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.

Ollie (the best ever Temp) and my man Theo sets this song on fire... Great rendition

20 Masterpiece

A pure blend of vocals and a funky orchestra. The tention, the excitement, purely a masterpiece.

21 Runaway Child, Running Wild
22 I Could Never Love Another

It should be number six.

23 Heavenly

Love all of their songs. But have to choose heavenly and you're my everything

24 Shakey Ground
25 Stay

Such a great song. Truly in the spirit of the early Temptations.

Beautiful lyrics, great voices.
