MOTOWN: JIMMY RUFFIN - WHAT BECOMES OF THE BROKENHEARTED

Keep it in the family (and Motown did that a lot!), Jimmy was the elder brother of David of The Temptations fame. What becomes of the brokenhearted wasn't written for him, but when he heard it he insisted to have it and was right; it became his biggest hit reaching #7 in the US and #4 in the UK. This is one of my all time Motown favorites. 
 
Countless covers have been made of this over the years and it has charted a few times:
Robson & Jerome (UK #1), Air Supply etc
But I think Jimmy's rough and heartfelt version is the best :-)
