The Miracles' most beloved single, "Ooo Baby Baby," a song that radio stations played day and night, and was the most requested tune at inner-city canteens, basement parties, cookouts, and chill sessions but didn't even sell a million copies. It didn't ace the R&B or the pop chart, finishing number four R&B and number 16 pop in 1965, yet the buttery-smooth, heartbreaking ballad has endured nearly four decades of repeated plays, remakes, and accolades. Writing credits go to Smokey Robinson and Miracle Pete "Warren" Moore. For comparisons, the Miracles' "My Girl Has Gone" -- not nearly as popular as "Ooo Baby Baby," which the Miracles dropped from their live show a couple of years after its release, and one that Smokey never sings on his solo gigs -- did better chart-wise with a number three pop showing and number 14 R&B; go figure. It's been redone by a slew of artists, including the Five Stairsteps, Linda Ronstadt, the Moments, the Whatnauts, Shalimar, the Escorts, Edwin Starr & Blinky, Sylvester, Ricardo Scales, Ralfi Pagan, and Ella Fitzgerald.
