The Tears of A Clown

Smokey Robinson & the Miracles - "The Tears of A Clown", 1967

This song was in my head for the past three days and I could only remember the instrumental part... and it was driving me nuts... but now I've found it, so I'm ok.

Co-written by Stevie Wonder, The Tears of A Clown was released in 1967, but was not successful as a single until 1970 when it was released in the UK and it went to #1. The same year it was a #1 hit in the US on both Billboard's "Hot 100" and "Black Singles Chart".
