My Girl

Track 6
"My Girl" (Smokey Robinson/Ronald White) – 2:38

Another one from the "What Were They Thinking?" file. "My Girl" was recorded more than two years before it appeared on Flowers, on the same day they recorded "Satisfaction". Given their previous failed attempts to perform soul songs credibly, it's no wonder the song sat in the can for a couple of years. The real mystery is what possessed them to record it in the first place.
