The Temptations-Papa Was A Rollin' Stone


I had a long post almost completely written for this jamandahalf. I tried to capture everything about it in that post. It's the longest jamandahalf we've had had, clocking in at almost 7 minutes and I tried my best to describe the movements of this jam, its story, the music, the bassline, and the history behind the Temptations. I wanted to tell you funny stories about this song, like the one time when Ainsley and I had an impromptu accapella rendition of this classic outside our dorm's lounge late one night, finger snapping and foot stomping the whole time. That post was almost a great one, but it failed to fully convey an incredibly simple message:

This is the funkiest song of all the time.
