#1 Song of the Week

Today in 1972 The Temptations hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with their 4th and last #1 single,
"Papa Was a Rolling Stone".

This remake of a forgotten song Undisputed Truth single spent only one week at the top but this may be one of their most popular and enduring hits.   A winner of 3 Grammy awards, Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Group, the B side instrumental won Best R&B Instrumental and the writers Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong won Best R&B Song.
