GUEST,Texas Guest Mo-Town Song Question??? (55* d) RE: Mo-Town Song Question??? 15 Jul 08

Wilson Pickett was an "Atlantic" artist as was Aretha Franklin, which leads me to ask - how in the hell did Aretha get out of Detroit without signing with Motown? What a coup for Atlantic.

You've got a whole bunch of good selections already submitted but I'll add a few more,,...some more difficult than others:

I'll Be Dog-gone - Marvin Gaye
Hitch-hike - Marvin Gaye
You Can't Hurry Love - Supremes (nice cover by Phil Collins, too)
Get Ready - Temptations (nice cover by Rare Earth, too)
Take Me In Your Arms - Isley Brothers (great Doobie cover)
This Old Heart Of Mine - Isley Brothers (simply classic)

...and finally, just for the hell of it you may consider a tribute song to Motown and do Rod Stewart's, "The Motown Song" - ...bring over some of your old Motown records, we'll put the speakers in the window and we'll go, on the roof and listen to the Miracles echo through the alley down below... Cheers from an old folkie who does some Motown and lives in Hockeytown South. Good Luck!
