    Download on Google Play:

    The Temptations are an American vocal group who released a series of successful singles and albums with Motown Records during the 1960s and 1970s; their work with producer Norman Whitfield, which started with the Top 10 hit single Cloud Nine in October 1968, pioneered psychedelic soul, and was significant in the evolution of R&B and soul music. The band members are known for their choreography, distinct harmonies, and flashy wardrobe. Having sold tens of millions of albums, the Temptations are one of the most successful groups in music history.

    Featuring five male vocalists and dancers (save for brief periods with fewer or more members), the group formed in 1960 in Detroit, Michigan under the name The Elgins. The original founding members were originally members of two rival Detroit vocal groups: Otis Williams, Elbridge Al Bryant, and Melvin Franklin of Otis Williams & the Distants, and Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams of the Primes. In 1964, Bryant was replaced by David Ruffin, who was the lead vocalist on a number of the group's biggest hits, including My Girl (1964), Ain't Too Proud to Beg (1966), and I Wish It Would Rain (1967). Ruffin was replaced in 1968 by Dennis Edwards, with whom the group continued to record hit records such as Cloud Nine (1969) and Ball of Confusion (That's What the World Is Today) (1970). The group's lineup has changed frequently since the departures of Kendricks and Paul Williams from the act in 1971. Later members of the group have included singers such as Richard Street, Damon Harris, Ron Tyson, and Ali-Ollie Woodson, with whom the group scored a late-period hit in 1984 with Treat Her Like a Lady.

  • The Temptations - Live In Concert


    The Temptations are an American vocal group who formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1960. They were known for their success in the 60s and 70s at Motown Records. The group's repertoire has included, during its five-decade career, R&B, doo-wop, funk, disco and soul music. Known for their recognizable choreography, distinct harmonies, and flashy onstage suits, the Temptations have been said to be as influential to soul as The Beatles are to pop and rock. Having sold tens of millions of albums, The Temptations are one of the most successful groups in music history. As of 2010, the Temptations continue to perform and record for Universal Records with its one living original member, Otis Williams, still in its lineup.

    The Temptations helped put Motown Records on the map in 1964, with their song The Way You Do The Things You Do rising to the top of the charts. They were the first Motown act to earn a Grammy Award. Three classic Temptations songs, My Girl, Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me), and Papa Was a Rollin' Stone, are among The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

  • THE TEMPTATIONS - My Girl - .wmv


    Un pequeño recuerdo al sello Motown, con uno de sus principales grupos, son los TEMPTATIONS, en un Medley donde incluyen los temas My Girl y (Know) I'm Losing You. My Girl es una composición de Smokey Robinson y Ronald White, que más tarde militarían en The Miracles. El sello Motown lanza al mercado My Girl el 21 de diciembre de 1964. Con este tema el grupo comenzó una nueva etapa en la que David Ruffin seria la voz principal.
    (I Know) I'm Losing You es otro éxito de la banda, pero esta vez del año 1966. La canción fue nº 1 en las listas de discos sencillos de R & B, y sirvió como presentación del álbum The Tempations With A Lot O' Soul del verano 1967.

  • The Temptations Since I Lost My Baby


    Here is a great example of the Motown sound. Since I Lost My Baby written by Smokey Robinson and Pete Moore of the Miracles was recorded by The Temptations on the Motown Records' Gordy subsidiary and released as a single on June 1, 1965, reaching number 17 on the Billboard 100 chart and number 4 on the Billboard R&B singles chart. David Ruffin was on lead vocal and Eddie Kendricks, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, and Otis Williams on background vocals. Instrumentation was by The Funk Brothers and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. It can be found on CD on The Temptations Greatest Hits album and on the 2 disk Anthology both on the Motown label.

  • The Temptations - Youre My Everything


    YouTube removed this version, i'm guessing from corporate suits pressure. Please YouTube and the suits i brought it back to COMMENT on how great this song is with no expecations of anything. Yes, I am CRITICIZING them for their actions but also am TEACHING, I hope, that music should not be censored by greed in this forum of us little people and et al.

    This song was written by Roger Penzabene as a testament to his love for his wife. After learning of her cheating he was heartbroken. He then wrote I Wish It Would Rain' describing his pain, then finally I Could Never Love Another to finish the trilogy of how he felt.

    Unable to handle the extreme pain and unwilling to leave his wife, he wrote the last two songs as personal statements to her, publicizing the pain she caused him. After both songs were completed and recorded, tragically Roger committed suicide.

    You surely must know magic girl
    Cause you changed my life
    It was dull and ordinary
    But you made it sunny and bright

    Now, I was blessed the day I found you
    Gonna build my whole world around you
    You're everything good girl and you're all that matters to me

    When my way was dark and troubles were near
    Your love provided the light so I could see girl
    Just knowin your love was near when times were bad
    Kept the world from closin in on me girl

    I was blessed the day I found you
    Gonna build my whole world around you
    You're everything good girl and you're all that matters to me

    Baby, you're part of every thought I think each day
    Your name is in every phrase my lips sing
    Every dream I dream is about you
    Honey I can't live without you

    Baby (baby), baby (baby), baby
    You're my everything, you're my everything, yes you are
    (Don't you know you're my everything)

    You're the girl I sing about in every love song I sing
    (You're my everything)
    You're my winter baby, my summer, my fall and spring
    (You're my everything)

    Now I was blessed the day I found you
    Gonna build my whole world around you
    You're everything good girl and you're all that matters to me
    You're my everything, you're my everything, yes you are
    (Don't you know you're my everything)
    You're my everything, you're my everything
    (Don't you know you're my everything)

    (When my way was dark and troubles were near, your love provided a light so I could see girl.
    Just knowing your love was near, times that were there kept the world

  • The Temptations - Just My Imagination


    Feel free to follow me on instagram.. name is 'gfunco'

    Was just jammin to this with some friends today in the car... The Temptations -- Just my Imagination - a classic.

    Couple interesting factoids about the Temptations (compliments of wikipedia):
    - the original group was a compilation of two local Detroit vocal groups -- The Distants & The Primes... coming together to first form The Elgins... before The Temptations
    - at the height of his success lead singer David Ruffin got a little absurd -- he demanded he ride to and from gigs in a private mink lined limousine... he started using cocaine, and when he missed a gig at a Cleveland club the other four members had to write up legal documentation -- and fired him
    - Ruffin then began turning up at Temptations shows, jumping onstage during performances of the songs he once sang lead on and stealing the spotlight. The audiences -- apparently - were delighted
    - Extra security guards were hired to prevent Ruffin from attending other Temptations' performances
    - the group has switched personnel multiple times; there are currently 6 members, and there are 17 former members
    - The Temptations were made honorary members of Phi Beta Sigma -- don't know why
    - they're known for wearing amazing matching tailored suits

  • The Temptations - Touch Me


    This was The Temptations' follow-up album to their chartbuster Truly For You.' It didn't all work out like they thought it might. But a lot of the album was great.... The title track is an Ali Woodson song all day long... not quite the pop appeal of Treat Her Like A Lady, and that's probably why it didn't chart as high. But still, a good song, and very under appreciated.

  • The Temptations - Smiling Faces Sometimes/Superstar Medley


    The Temptations perform a great medley of Smiling Faces (Sometimes Don't Tell The Truth) and Superstar here in 1972. This particular grouping of Tempts were somewhat stable as they managed to stay together for nearly 5 years (1971-75). They consisted of Melvin Franklin, Damon Harris, Otis Williams, Richard Street and Dennis Edwards.

    The were very good.....!!!
