Smokey Robinson And The Miracles 80s

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – Tracks Of My Tears

ABC were in the chart with their tribute to Smokey, but the man himself was enjoying an old song being back in the chart.

The song reached US#16 when originally released in ’65, then UK#9 in ’69. It was back to #82 in the 80s, and finally in the chart for the last time, on this day in the 80s, at #98.

This was the band’s last time on the chart, the last of 7 hits from ’68-’87, which included the ’70 #1 “Tears Of A Clown”.

In the US they had a much longer career, with 46 hits from ’59-’75, including 2 #1s.

 

People say I’m the life of the party ’cause I tell a joke or two
