Motown appreciation thread

Completely classic, soulful pop music.

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles
Marvin Gaye
Diana Ross & The Supremes
The Temptations
Stevie Wonder
Four Tops
The Isley Brothers
etc...

I was raised on this kind of music. My dad's favorite singer of all time is Smokey Robinson.

I think it's finest pop music ever written. Still holds up extremely well 50 years later. Only a heartless hate monger can hate Motown, and I bet there's even plenty of heartless hate mongers that dig on Motown as well.

I hate to break it to you guys, but I don't think Al Green was on Motown.

But he's still awesome.

True, but he exemplifies the Motown Sound©, so he counts. To me anyway.

Ah, but if you go down that path, then someone will bring up Aretha ... also not on Motown.

And then someone will bring up Tiny Tim and the Captain and Tenille. Really, really not on Motown.

Even people who hate on Detroit love Motown music.

Heck yes! I'm one of them! *lives 20 minutes outside of Detroit.* Motown is some of the best music ever created.

One of my favorite songs ever is a Motown oldie you don't hear that often - "Shotgun" by Junior Walker and the All-Stars.

I've never heard anything else from them, but man oh man, I love that song!
