The Temptations

So, I was thinking about Valentine's Day, Fashion Week, and Black History Month all at the same time, (since they're all this month), when "My Girl" by The Temptations randomly started playing in the background (I had my ipod on shuffle)… and from that, this posting was born. The Temptations have some of the greatest love songs on earth and they sung them with so much style (and soul of course). So here's a mini-tribute to them (inspired by v-day, style, and history).

 

Ain't Too Proud To Beg

The Way You Do the Things You Do

 

Of course, I really wanted to post "My Girl", but re-posting was disabled for the video, so you can watch it here.

  1. YYEEESSS!!!!
    These guys make thing of a more simple time where people sang about love and hardship. When music was amazing, Motown was at their pinnacle and that sweet Detroit sound consumed the airwaves!

    This video is sweet too:

  2. The Temps were the quintessential gentlemen back in the day. I am an avid fan of harder music, but my favorite group has always been the Temptations. “Just My Imagination”, “Ball of Confusion”, “My Girl”, “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”… That was a time when people actually performed their songs, and the Temps did it with a class and style above any other artist of their time. This is, however, only my opinion and it is quite biased.

  3. What a great tribute! I love the temptations and well, pretty much all motown music. Their fashion sense wasn’t too shabby either. Do you think their style has made a comeback? If so, is it here to stay?

  4. Yea, it’s definitely made a comeback… I think this style will always be around for alot of people, and it’s here to stay for a while. But trends/fashion always changes so at some point within the next 10-20 years it may or may not be the most “in-trend” style if you know what I mean.

  5. GREAT WEBSITE!
