    Default THE greatest Motown song..

    Almost impossible, due to nearly everything they released being top notch..

    Whats your favourite top five Motown numbers??

    Jeez..my list is about 50 songs long! I could happily live on a desert island with nothing but the entire Motown catalogue to listen to..
    you just NEVER get tired of those songs

    Wow just five, thats harsh, but here goes

    Otis reading - Dock of the Bay

    The Tears Of A Clown-Smokey Robinson And The Miracles

    Let's Get It On- Marvin Gaye OR Sexual Healing

    Just my Imagination- Temptations

    All night long- Lionel Richie

    Gosh I could go on and on, and hey Daz you dont get off that lightly, your five please

    Also kinda changes depending on my mood

    Herein lies the problem..

    Motown has soundtracked everyones lives..apart from the teenage chav on the street, but no doubt, in a few years, another TV campaign like the Levis one in 85 will ensure they buy the latest "Best of Motown" when its fashionable

    As I said..lthe list of top notch songs, by top notch artists is silly..
    Motown is beyond quantification, its just part of life

    Sure is a part of life, music you grow up listening to, Diana Ross,Lionel Richie, Steve Wonder, Crystal Gayle all firm favourites in Mum and Dad's record collection all timeless classics
