Smokey Robinson and The Miracles – Tracks of my tears

This track caused me to become that crazy guy on the tube today. It came on my mp3 player and about half way through the song I realised I was singing along out loud with my eyes closed. Not a particularly proud moment. A good song though.

It is one of the very first soul songs I ever loved, before I even really knew what soul music was. I still like it as much today as the first time I heard it. I know it is a bit cheesy but there is just something about it I find utterly compelling.
