Funk is awesome!

I don't know what it is about Motown though. If I hear a song in a movie as part of a soundtrack, I think it is awesome. If I hear the same song on the radio, I generally change the channel. Maybe I heard too much of it when I was a kid. :?

I grew up with this stuff... It reminds me of being a kid in NYC and sitting on the stoop with a little transistor radio... AM didn't kill the batteries as quick... :lol:

Also, all the little pizza joints would have Motown playing for some reason... Kind of funny to watch the Paisans behind the counter singing Diana Ross songs...

"Stop! In the name of love..." :lol:

I like a lot of what you listed, but I must be burnt out on My Girl. Whenever I hear it now I want to shove pencils in my ears.

Yep... and everyone seems to cover that song... even Alabama did this one (and rather well, I might add)... :B

That's probably why "Papa Was A Rolling Stone"... He was trying to keep his distance from "My Girl"... Papa was a pretty smart guy... :wink:
