William “Smokey” Robinson Jr. turns 75 today. One of the prototypical Zoomers, he’s a singer, songwriter, producer, impresario, a style icon and an entrepreneur. He’s hand a hand in some of the biggest songs of all time – in fact, every song on today’s Top Ten was a #1 hit. Smokey either wrote or sang every one of these songs – and in some cases, he did both!
10. CRUISIN’ – Huey Lewis & Gwyneth Paltrow
9. MY GIRL – The Temptations
8. MY GUY – Mary Wells
Those are the three biggest songs Smokey Robinson wrote. Now here are his biggest hits as a singer:
7. TRACKS OF MY TEARS – The Miracles
6. YOU’VE REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME – The Miracles
5. I SECOND THAT EMOTION – The Miracles
4. JUST TO SEE HER – Smokey Robinson
3. TEARS OF A CLOWN – The Miracles
2. BEING WITH YOU – Smokey Robinson
1. SHOP AROUND – The Miracles
