Matt Henshaw Sings ... 'My Girl' by The Temptations
Here's me trying to do justice to a classic song. I don't do a lot of covers as many of you very well know, hence the lack of "Matt Henshaw Sings ..." blogs but here we are, here's one ...
This is a classic on so many levels, I got cajoled into singing it by the-chap-filming-the-show's wife, and because I'm such a sucker, and such a nice guy, just so you know, I'll always give in to these requests, but only if I know the song. You won't hear me singing Plain White Ts anytime soon ...
Anyway, so many levels, this song was written by Smokey Robinson for his wife, first made into a hit by the most successful Motown group, The Temptations, and then covered by Otis Redding ! Some of the greatest soul singers of all-time ever have tackled it !!
And there's a big time film movie motion picture based on it's title, starring the kid from Home Alone, Macauley Culkin, and Ray from Ghostbusters, my childhood hero along with Chris Waddle and Brett Hart, Dan Aykroyd. And Jamie Lee Curtis, you know her who we saw her naked boobs in that horror film we watched before we were old enough too, and it wasn't even that scary, but hooray boobs, Halloween !
Peace, Love & Tea, MHx
