The Miracles also originally sung "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" but their version wasn't allowed to be released - probably because it didn't fit them. I don't think "My Girl" fit them either. Only the Temptations could sing "My Girl" just like "Grapevine" was only meant for Gladys & Marvin.

Ouch! @ ((Cleo)) & ((Quick)) lol...I think you have a point though...Smokey's voice just wasn't strong enough to carry off some of the covers which is why there is something to be desired when listening to them
