    J5 did this? I thought Barry Gordy said no to the song because it made the J5 look a bit raunchy. Not raunchy, I'm not sure what word I'm looking for but I don't think they did a version of the song.

    This is from "For The Record"

    ONE BAD APPLE
    Song Berry Gordy rejected for the Jackson 5, only for it to be recorded
    in classic Jackson 5 style by the Osmonds – who held the no.1 spot on
    the Hot 100 in the States while the Jackson 5’s own Mama’s Pearl
    stalled at no.2.
    ‘Did you know that record was ours at first?’ Michael once asked. ‘But
    Motown turned it down. George Jackson is the producer, and he came
    to Motown with it, and Motown turned it down because we were in a
    funky, strong track-type bag, with good melody. George’s song was
    good, but too easy going – we were striving for something much
    stronger. So he went and gave it to the Osmonds. They sang it, and it
    was a smash – number one!’


    It may not have ever been recorded.

    The osmonds almost turned it down to the dad thought "sock it to ya again" was to suggestive. According to the Osmond biography thing I saw a few years back. A lot of younger kids have actually re-recorded the song and changed the lyrics to "break your heart again"

    The reverse of this is that Ben was written for Donny Osmond to sing, but he was busy at the time and couldn't do it. Donny did finally record Ben a few years ago

    Gordy missed out
