Description

"Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" is a soul song, written by Motown songwriters Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong as a single for Motown act The Undisputed Truth in 1971. This version of "Papa" was released as a single in early 1972, and peaked at number sixty-three on the pop charts and number twenty-four on the R&B charts.

Later in 1972, Whitfield, who also produced the song, took "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" and remade it as a twelve-minute record for The Temptations, which was a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and won three Grammy Awards in 1973. While the original Undisputed Truth version of the song has been largely forgotten, The Temptations' version of the song has been an enduring and influential soul classic. It was ranked #168 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, one of the group's three songs on the list. In retrospect, The Temptations' Otis Williams considers "Papa" to be the last real classic the group recorded

Looks like myspace videos have stopped working again, even on their own site. I contacted their support and reported the problem.

Unfortunately, our tech team is only focusing on songs/videos uploaded within the last 3 years. There is no time frame of when media uploaded over 3 years ago will be fixed. We updated our player to HTML5. The videos (the few I checked on your website) are FLV files. Unfortunately, we do not offer a way to play or download these videos. I am including your email as feedback for a requested option.
I'll wait until August and then they will be deleted if not fixed by then.
