Single Song Sunday

For our first Single Song Sunday of the year, we have a message for those of you still mooching after last year: Don't Look Back.

Written by Smokey Robinson and Ronald White, "Don't Look Back" was first recorded by the Temptations in 1965, although I first come across it through Peter Tosh's version a decade or so later. Despite the vocal gurning of Mick Jagger, it is probably still my favourite. Here are those two and half a dozen more. I have spared you Teena Marie's disco version.

"Don't Look Back" - The Temptations

"(You Gotta Walk) Don't Look Back" - Peter Tosh (with Mick Jagger)

"Don't Look Back" - Bobby Womack

"Don't Look Back" - Betye Swann

"Don't Look Back" - Busty Brown

"Don't Look Back" - Youssou N'Dour 

"Don't Look Back" - Joe Wilson

"Don't Look Back" - Darts
