The Temptations Sing Smokey is a 1965 album by The Temptations. As its name implies, it is composed entirely of songs written and produced by Smokey Robinson, and several other members of the Miracles as well. Several of the songs are covers of songs Robinson produced for the Miracles or Mary Wells, while the rest were originally recorded by The Temptations. Among these are three successful hit singles, starting with "The Way You Do the Things You Do", which featured Eddie Kendricks on lead vocals. The next two songs feature lead vocals by new Temptation David Ruffin: "It's Growing" and the group's signature song, "My Girl".
