Smiling Faces: The Best of Undisputed Truth album at Amazon.com
Smiling faces sometimes pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks with in
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces
And got proof
The #3 song, "Smiling Faces Sometimes" was a Motown song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong and originally released and recorded by the Temptations that didn't have much success with it. Then came along the threesome known as the Undisputed Truth on the Tamla subsidiary lapel of Motown with their rather funky looking post modern psychedelic influenced look. After they recorded "Smiling Faces Sometimes" it became an instant hit (unfortunately their only one in the pop charts). "Smiling Faces Sometimes" is a very uptempo, if not rather psychedelic sounding tune, but the message is at least kind of scary about the lesson of "smiling faces" (it did come out of the fact many young people of the time were very very suspicious of President Richard Nixon, and obviously for very good reasons), if not nearly depressing to at least maybe paranoid, if you stopped and thought about all the times that a "smiling face" might be leading you on and not being truthful or helpful.
