I was inspired to post this thread after watching an infomercial on Motown. Man...what great music. When I was a kid, my uncle was heavily into Motown groups like the Supremes, The Temptations, The Four Tops, to name a few. Those songs are some of the most well written and memorable songs I can think of. Great bass lines by the legendary James Jamerson (check out "Reflections" by the Supremes for example), wonderful lyrics and melodies...just awesome. Anyone else influenced at all or a fan of the Motown stuff?
