Temptations ball of confusion thats what the world is today


Odd. "Ball of Confusion," hands down, one of the Temptations' most popular records, didn't ace the R&B or the pop charts during its run the spring/summer of 1970. Odd because you'll be hard-pressed to find a more loved record by the then Dennis Edwards-led Temptations. Odd because the record was played incessantly on urban and pop radio and had people dancing in the street. Hardly a flop (number two R&B/three pop), it just didn't do as everyone expected, which was to assail the charts like a bear trying to fill up before hibernating season. The Norman Whitfield/Barrett Strong song knocked you dead with socially conscious lyrics about the world's and people's woes, and had a driving beat that embedded in your brain and juiced your feet. The timing was right, too: right in the midst of the Vietnam conflict with an apropos title. It's been redone by Duran Duran, Tina Turner, Love and Rockets, Opium Jukebox, and others.

As a result, Otis Williams and the producers would be sued by several people portrayed in the film and their families, notably Melvin Franklin's mother and the children and estate of David Ruffin.
