Yahoo LAUNCHCAST song of the day
Artist:Smokey Robinson & The Miracles
Song:The Tracks Of My Tears
Album:The Ultimate Collection
The thing you have to remember about William "Smokey" Robinson is that he not only had several big hits with the Miracles but he wrote and produced plenty of hits for other Motown artists. He really personifies the Motown Sound and was there from the very start. The Tracks Of My Tears is one of his greatest songs and you can't go wrong with the 25 songs on The Ultimate Collection. It's part of a series Motown released a few years ago. Robinson returned to the charts in the 80s with his Quiet Storm sound. These days he's kind of semi retired but Smokey goes right to the top of the class of R & B legends.
