Did You Know: “Just My Imagination” By The Temptations

The ‘Tickets @ 2′ song to listen for today between two and three is “Just My Imagination” by The Temptations.

Motown writers Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong wrote it in the late ’60s, but since Psychedelic songs were popular at the time they decided to wait a few years before releasing it.

This was the last single for the Temptations with Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams in the group. Eddie started a solo career and in 1973 scored his biggest hit with “Keep On Truckin’.” Williams remained on salary as an adviser, but was plagued with personal problems – he was separated from his wife, owed back taxes and was being treated for alcoholism. Sadly he committed suicide in 1973 at the age of 34.

This was the third of four # 1 hits by the Temptations in April of 1971.

When you hear it play between two and three we’ll take caller # 11 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Peter Cetera at the Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts in Costa Mesa.
