Any Smokey song. Anything Raoul Cita, Billy Ward, Frank Wilson, Laura Nyro and Teddy Randazzo wrote would be okay with me. But I really wish I could have written "It's The Way Nature Planned It" by the Four Tops or... OOH BABY BABY by the Miracles (this is the most unhealthy obsession with a song you all will ever witness, really).

Back in the early 70s when I fronted a 50s Rock'n'Roll band, I dabbled in songwriting, and my compositions were deliberately in an early 60s pastiche style. I recall being amused after we'd recorded one particular song of mine - a Rick Nelson-ish Country-rock tune - to hear the last line of my middle eight on a record in my collection...
"'cause a man ain't supposed to cry"
I'd accidentally 'borrowed' both lyric and melody from Dee Clark's "Raindrops".

FOR ME THAT SONG WOULD BE[I CAN'T FIND]BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY FALL IN LOVE MANY TIMES THE FIRST LOVE IS THE DEEPEST AND NONE OF THE OTHERS QUITE MEASURE UP.THAT'S WHAT SMOKEY MEANT WHEN HE WROTE[I'VE BEEN LOOKIN THERE'S JUST NOBODY AROUND,NO SENSE LOOKIN FOR WHO CAN NEVER BE FOUND}.

there was a song titled SWEET BITTER LOVE.I THOUGHT
THE LYRICS WERE SO TOUCHING.EVEN THOUGH I WAS
14 AND NEVER BEEN IN LOVE,THAT SONG MADE ME CRY
EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS CRYING ABOUT.
I'D PLAY IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.THOSE LYRICS WERE
TOUCHING.I WISH I COULD TOUCH EMOTIONS LIKE THAT.

Aretha recorded "Sweet Bitter Love" for Columbia in 1964--perhaps this is the version you're referring to.

Actaully, there are many BAD songs I wish I'd written. Then, having seen how awful they were, I could have torn them up and spared everyone the agony of having to hear them!
