My Girl by The Temptations just seems to be one of those songs that has been around forever and you would assume was a number one hit in its day.

It hit the top of the US charts, reaching number 1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Hot R&B Singles. In Australia, though, it only got to number 42 – something of a surprise to me when researching this countdown.

A great example of the early Motown sound that featured so heavily on the charts throughout the mod 1960’s. A nice gentle tune that reflects the era in which it was released.

Staggering that it didn’t make it to higher than number 42 here.
