The intra-company competition between songwriters at Motown was fierce. Even label-founder Berry Gordy got into the act, bragging to his protégé, Smokey Robinson, that he'd written a career-launching hit for the Temptations. Robinson knew that he and fellow Miracles member Bobby Rogers had written "the hit" while they drove back to Detroit after an engagement at New York's Apollo Theatre. During a company meeting, the vote went to the Robinson/Rogers song, "The Way You Do the Things You Do." The song has Robinson's trademark lyric style: "You have a smile so bright/You could've been a candle/I'm holding you so tight you could be a handle." "The Way You Do the Things You Do" went to number 11 pop in early 1964 (no R&B charts were published that year). The LP The Temptations Sing Smokey also included "My Girl," "It's Growing," and "I'll Be in Trouble."
