Tracks of my tears – Smokey Robinson and the Miracles
I was just listening to a CD with some great Motown hits, including the original, Tracks of my Tears. Smokey Robinson is a great songwriter and I say that because I think that there is no better pop song than “My Girl.” Recently though, I learned that it’s not just his songwriting that set him apart. Here’s Pete Townshend of The Who:
The lyric, so applauded by rock critics, was thrown together very quickly. Smokey Robinson sang the word ‘substitute’ so perfectly in TRACKS OF MY TEARS- my favorite song at the time- that I decided to celebrate the word itself with a song all its own.
I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
