About Rockphiles

Smokey Robinson met Berry Gordy, Jr., in 1957 and the two wrote "Bad Girl" (1959) and "Shop Around" (1960), which became the first Motown hits for Smokey's vocal group, The Miracles. Robinson wrote many hits for other singers as well. His best-known compositions include "The One Who Really Loves You" (1962), "You've Really Got a Hold on Me" (1963), "The Way You Do the Things You Do" (1964), "My Guy" and "My Girl" (both 1965), "I'm the One You Need" (1966), "I Second That Emotion" (1968), "The Tears of a Clown" (1970), "I Don't Blame You at All" (1971), and "Just to See Her" (1987). Robinson served as vice-president/artist development for Motown Records from 1967 to 1988. He left the Miracles in 1972 to concentrate on his Motown duties but resumed performing as a solo act in 1975. He continues to enjoy a successful performing career to this day.
