My Girl", released December 21, 1964, is a 1965 number-one single recorded by The Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) label. Written and produced by Miracles members Smokey Robinson and Ronald White, the song became the Temptations' first U.S. number-one single, and is today their signature song. Robinson's inspiration for writing this song was his wife, Miracles member Claudette Rogers Robinson, and he originally intended to have his group record the song.
Guitarist Chuck Berry's first two recordings ('Maybelline' and 'Roll Over Beethoven') in 1955 shot him to instant fame. Be as may, of all the rock and roll Berry recorded, his best-selling tune was also his silliest and least expressive of his considerable talents: 'My Ding-a-Ling' in 1972.
