I know, Flo. I'm not a great singer either, but that doesn't stop me - which may explain why my neighbors keep their windows closed.
That Neirak from Barcelona is great, isn't he? I think all four of the covers have their charms. Surprising how good Collins is. You don't expect it, from the setup, there at her desk with ear buds flopping all over, but turns out she knows what she's doing. And Soul Jam is fun. That red-head is all business, isn't she? If I had to pick one favorite, I think it might be that Alvarez guy from Belgium. But they're all good. There are actually a few other good covers up on YouTube, but I was trying to avoid the more professional performances. The ones I posted here are semi-pro, at most.

My Girl is a soul music song recorded by the Temptations
for the Gordy (Motown) record label. Written and produced by
the Miracles members Smokey Robinson and Ronald White, it
became the Temptations' first U.S. number 1 single, and is today
their signature song. Robinson's inspiration for writing "My Girl"
was his wife, Miracles member Claudette Rogers Robinson. The
song was included on the Temptations 1965 album The Temptations
Sing Smokey. In 2017, the song was selected for preservation in
the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being
"culturally, historically, or artistically significant". The recorded version
of "My Girl" was the first Temptations single to feature David Ruffin on
lead vocals. Previously, Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams had performed
most of the group's lead vocals, and Ruffin had joined the group as a
replacement for former Temptation Elbridge Bryant. While on tour as
part of the Motortown Revue, a collective tour for most of the Motown roster,
Smokey Robinson caught the Temptations' part of the show. For their set,
the group had included a medley of soul standards, one of which, the Drifters'
"Under the Boardwalk", was a solo spot for Ruffin. Impressed, Robinson
decided to produce a single with Ruffin singing lead. Robinson saw Ruffin as
a "sleeping giant" in the group with a unique voice that was "mellow" yet
"gruff". Robinson thought that if he could write just the perfect song for
Ruffin's voice, then he could have a smash hit. The composition was to be
something that Ruffin could "belt out" yet something that was also "melodic
and sweet".  More at Wikipedia..
