I will vote for the Temptations, simply on the grounds that I believe that they have better-sounding voices.

Huh... thats hard.
Both made great songs and had/still have a enormous influence in music worldwide... im not 100% sure here, but i think The Temptations even sing in other languages than english.

To make a decision i must reduce it on their, imo, best song, so, because of "papa was a olling stone" i vote for:
The Temptations.

The one song, "I Wish It Would Rain," decides it for me. That is a beautiful song, and David Ruffin does an amazing job with the lead vocals. I also prefer the other Temptations songs to the Miracles songs. Beautiful voices all around.

Glad to see this is actually running again. It's been nearly two years since I last cast a vote here, so I'll be sure to make this one count. As much as I would love to see a clean sweep, because my OCD enjoys such things, I will be voting for the Miracles this round, because I feel their sound did a better job of capturing the era than the Temptations' did. I have also never been too keen on the whole doo-wop sound, so the whole thing with 5 people singing at once never really registered with me as being delightful. We all have our different tastes, of course.

I'm tempted to post the current score so far, because that's what folks did in olden times.

Temptations - 5
Miracles - 1

It would take a miracle for the underdog to win this battle at the rate people are voting.

Never heard of either of them... And I don't really wanna take a listen.
I'll sit out.


Thank you for your contribution?

A new Motown battle! Nice one Ernie... =)

I know both contestants pretty well and one thing that struck me is that they both went different, and actually opposite, ways in terms of the feel with their lyrics and songs... the Temptations chose to have some more 'happy' love songs, whereas the Miracles had a more overall 'sad' feeling in their songs.

Even though I love both of them to death, I prefer a slight leaning towards the Miracles, simply because they are able to have that sad feeling portrayed in their performance of their songs so well!

Therefor, my vote goes to the (apparent) underdog: Smokey Robinson & The Miracles! =)
