Sad!

The iconic frontman of the Motown group had been battling leukemia, and died at his home in Cali.

Truly a man of soul!

    Motown ruled in it's day, and it still holds true musically. I can't believe you even know who the Temptations are. Where did you cut and paste this one from?

    Aw, what a shame. My condolences to the family.
    I'm such a fan.
    The Temptations were the very best!
    They were so professional, their unique sound and dressed to perfection…here in Texas, we call that,
    - "They had their shit wired tight!"
    They were a vision to see. The kids today missed out on a lot.
    -
    Saw them in 1967, in NYC twice…up in Harlem. My mom wouldn't let me go to Woodstock, but she went with me to see The Temptations.
    Motown was amazing back then. I hated The Beach Boys…for me, Motown and Phil Spector's, 'Wall of Sound', Sonny & Cher, Mama Cass.
    Such Good memories.
    Rest in Peace, Ollie.

    I've got sunshine
    On a cloudy day.
    When it's cold outside,
    I've got the month of May.

    Well, I guess you'll say
    What can make me feel this way?
    My girl. (My girl, my girl)
    Talkin' ’bout my girl. (My girl)

    I've got so much honey
    The bees envy me.
    I've got a sweeter songThan the birds in the trees.

    Well, I guess you'll say
    What can make me feel this way?
    My girl. (My girl, my girl)
    Talkin' ’bout my girl. (My girl)

    Ooooh, Hoooo.

    Hey, hey, hey.
    Hey, hey, hey.

    I don't need no money,
    Fortune or fame.
    I've got all the riches, baby,
    One man can claim.

    Well, I guess you'll say
    What can make me feel this way?
    My girl. (My girl, my girl)
    Talkin' ’bout my girl. (My girl)

    Talkin' bout my girl.
    I've got sushine on cloudy day
    With my girl.
    I've even got the month of MayWith my girl.
