The Motown legend reveals the secret inspiration behind one of his best songs

Singer, songwriter, record producer, record executive, founder of one of the most iconic Motown bands of all time, and an all-around legendary artist is sitting down with Paul Shaffer this weekend. Sunday, Shaffer will be joined by Smokey Robinson for a chat about his life in music and his journey as an artist and as a musician. In this sneak peek, Robinson talks about the inspiration behind one of the 4,000 songs he has written over the span of his career, “The Tracks of My Tears”. After he wrote the song, he was left searching for one last perfect addition to the chorus and found it simply by looking in the mirror.
