My girl - The Temptations

Back in the Eighties, commercials with old Motown hits were all the rage. Everybody remembers Nick Kamen stripping off in the launderette to the sound of Marvin Gaye's 'I heard it through the grapevine'. A Dutch commercial about milk was made to the sound of this song, 'My girl' by the Temptations. When it was re-released as a single, it promptly reached number 19 in the Dutch Top 40.

It has to be said, though, that this single is a re-release in the UK as a result of a compilation album by the Temptations because of their 25th anniversary. And in the UK, this re-release did not chart.

My collection: 7" single no. 1053
Found: Record Exchange, London, October 17, 1989
Cost: 50p
Tracks: 'My girl' / 'Wherever I lay my hat (that's my home)'
