I Know I'm Losing You - The Temptations

As much as I prefer Northern Soul to Motown it's hard to imagine the modern R&B landscape without The Temptation's influence. Many acts attempt to replicate their harmonies, smooth choreography and superfly threads, but none could ever match their unparalleled success. If I could entertain the fantasy of becoming an extra member of any band I wouldn't be a Beatle or Rolling Stone, I'd be a mother f'in Temptation. No question.

"I Know I'm Losing You" is one of their lesser known hits from 1966 and one of my personal favorites. Enjoy.

I Know I'm Losing You

This live version stars Dennis Edwards instead of David Ruffin on lead vocals. I was always impressed by the consistently high quality of their music despite rearranging their lineup several times over the years and decades.
