I’ve always liked this song, and it was the first one I thought of today.

From a Wiki article:

This version peaked for three weeks in the United States at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 in December 1967.[2][3][4] It became the Miracles highest charting popular single since “Shop Around“. In this song, guitarists Eddie Willis and Robert White came up with their own guitar licks and riffs for this song based on a chord chart that was given to them by Robinson (this is a classic example of the creativity the Funk Brothers brought to the table during the recording sessions they participated in at the Snake Pit). Regular Miracles guitarist Marv Tarplin was also present on the song.[5]

The song also topped the Billboard Best Selling R&B Singles chart[6][7] and was a million-selling hit for The Miracles, their sixth overall.[8] The song was also a top 30 hit in the UK in 1967, reaching No. 27.

“I Second That Emotion”
(with The Miracles)

Maybe you’ll wanna give me kisses sweet
But only for one night and no repeat
And maybe you’ll go away and never call
And a taste of honey’s worse than none at allOh little girl, in that case I don’t want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin’ me
If you got the notion
I second that emotionSo, if you feel like givin’ me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotionOoh

Maybe you think that love would tie you down
And you don’t have the time to hang around
Maybe you think that love was made for fools
And so it makes you wise to break the rules

Oh little girl
In that case I don’t want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin’ me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion

So, if you feel like givin’ me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion

Ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh

Oh little girl, In that case I don’t want no part
I do believe that, that would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like lovin’ me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion

So, if you feel like givin’ me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion
Oh, little girl
I second that emotion
[FADES] – Ooh little girl I second that emotion
