Few songs come along that are prophetic for generations. I wouldn't doubt that in 50 more years people are saying this song still applies to their world.

This song came out in a time when the world was going through the crisis of the 60's. In 2020 were still living in a ball of confusion .

We had the best music EVER and we didnt sit around playing games. We got out and talked to each other to promote change and get to know each other. People today think dancing is something only professionals do.

Grew up with the Temptations right along with Motown and the rest of the Great ones. Smokey Robinson Marvin Gaye and The Spinners The Four Tops Diana Ross and The Supremes Stevie Wonder can't forget Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5 Gladys Knight & the Pips and all the other great ones. As kids growing up it didn't matter that we
was white hell we thought we was the Temptations. Grew up in the Harmon Gardens in Detroit Michigan right off of Joy Road and Southfield. The Herman Gardens before the 69 riots just one color and that was people at the time family both colors under the reporteco listening to The Temptations and the rest of Motown. The people that lived in the Herman Garden always under there listening to the great singers. But the 69 riots that day was crazy there was familys regardless of what color when the riots broke loose brothers or not each color was fighting for there race. Before that day at least in the Herman Gardens people got along for the most part and Motown had a lot to do it and after that day well different. If you didn't love the Men and Women of Motown there was something wrong with you don't come to Detroit telling people you didn't like Motown. I Love Detroit And The People In It. God Bless 🙏

People movin' out, people movin' in.
Why, because of the color of their skin.
Run, run, run, but you sho' can't hide
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
Vote for me and I'll set you free
Rap on, brother, rap on.
Well, the only person talkin' 'bout love thy brother is the preacher
And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration, aggravation,
humiliation, obligation to our nation
Ball Of Confusion that's what the world is today (yeah, yeah)
The sale of pills is at an all time high
young folks walkin' 'round with their heads in the sky
Cities aflame in the summer time, and oh the beat goes on
Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
City inspectors, bill collectors,
Evolution, revolution, gun control, the sound of soul,
Shootin' rockets to the moon, kids growin' up too soon
Politicians say more taxes will solve ev'rything, and the band played on.
Round and round and around we go, where the world's headed nobody knows.
Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talkin' to you, just a
Ball of Confusion that's what the world is today. (yeah, yeah)
Fear in the air, tension ev'rywhere
Unemployment rising fast, the Beatle's new record's a gas,
and the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation,
and the band played on
Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
City inspectors, bill collectors, mod clothes in demand,
population out of hand, suicide too many bills, hippies movin' to the hills
People all over the world are shouting end the war and the band played on.
Round and round and around we go, where the world's headed nobody knows.
Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talkin' to you, just a
Ball of Confusion that's what the world is today
Let me hear you, let me hear you, let me hear you
Ball Of Confusion that's what the world is today

Man this song is so relevant today. Oh and one of my favorite songs. The Temptations were as,talented a group (black, white, asian,etc..) as you'd ever find and listen to. Tons of awesome hits.

This is my first ever favorite song on the Top 40, from when I was eight or nine. It sounds as fresh today as it did then. The only thing I don't like here are some of the choices for the video above. I mean, really: a systems integration graphics to represent racial integration? Come on, man.

Why do comments about race always show in the comments. I listen to this music and it takes me back to a time when music was music. Years there were problems then as now but if we all could put the music in front of all that we could have a better world. GOD BLESS
