Jimmy Rufin was born in Colinsville, Mississippi. Being the older brother of Temptation member David Ruffin (the lead voice on “My Girl”), he had an entree in the Motown studios, and began backup vocal work in the early ’60s. By 1966 he was on the Top Ten with “Brokenhearted,” an ostensibly romantic song, but actually a reflective narrative on universal loneliness.
