The Temptations went to the top of the singles chart with the Smokey
Robinson penned "My Girl", making the group the first male act to have
a chart topper for Motown Records, the first single to feature David Ruffin
on lead vocals and the group’s first number-one hit. It became the groups
signature song. In 2004, "My Girl" was ranked number 88 on Rolling Stone ‘​s
list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

Tune Trivia: The Miracles were originally picked to record the song.
