“My Girl” is a¬†soul music¬†song recorded by¬†the Temptations¬†for the Gordy (Motown) record label. Written and produced by¬†the Miracles¬†members¬†Smokey Robinson¬†and¬†Ronald White, the song became the Temptations’ first U.S. number-one single, and is today their signature song.

In 2018, it was selected for preservation in the¬†National Recording Registry¬†by the¬†Library of Congress¬†as being “culturally, historically, or artistically significant.

My Girl – Otis Redding

This time I decided to do my own video. Originally a Temptations song – Maybe I’ll post their version later.

I made the video myself – One of my first attempts at video editing, using the built in software in Windows 10 “Video Editor” – it’s OK, but I did have some issues (don’t use too many effects on one clip). Often other videos aren’t that well made – So I thought I’d try my hand at making my own. You can be the judge of whether I made a good job or not !

I like the idea of using the creative tools that are to hand for free, rather than forking out cash that I don’t have. And simple is good these days.

RIP Otis Redding.
