Special occasion Like when you dress up In your tie and tails Yeah, yeah Special occasion Every time and it never fails. To give me a thrill That's fresh and new Every time I'm kissing you It's something that you do That makes every time you kiss me. A real special occasion Like one that calls for A toast of champagne Yeah, yeah, yeah Special occasion Every time and it's hard to explain. How the same old touch From the same old hand Can make me feel Like a different man I just can't understand But every time you touch me. It's a real special occasion Yeah, yeah Special occasion, oh, oh yeah Hmm hmm, yeah. Ooh, beautiful music begins to play You are the sun That brightens up my day Why don't you stay 'Cause every time I'm with you.

Smokey Robinson and the Miracles topped the US R&B album chart only twice, the second time on 7 December 1968 with Special Occasion. 1968 had brought the group three more top ten R&B hits, ‘If You Can Want,’ ‘Yester Love’ and ‘Special Occasion,’ to bring their total to an awesome 16 in some eight years. So the new album was widely anticipated, especially as it included all three of those hit singles. It also contained their version of ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine,’ which had been a pop and R&B smash a year earlier for Gladys Knight & the Pips (and was now doing the same for Marvin Gaye) but had been first recorded by the Miracles.
Special occasion, the album occupying the second half of this twofer, made the top 50 of the American pop album charts and the very top of the R+B album charts
