Toni & Chancellor:

I agree, just about everything, but off the top of my head:

My Baby Must Be a Magician
The Hunter Gets Captured By the Game— The Marvellettes
Tears of A Clown—Smokey Robinson and the Miracles
I Second that Emotion—Smokey Robinson and the Miracles (to this day one of the most wonderful records to have ever come out of Motown)
Cruisin—Smokey
That's The Way Love Is—Marvin Gaye (I actually like this cut better than I Heard It Through the Grapevine)
ANYTHING Stevie Wonder

Michael

A list would be inexhaustible for me, Tamla is my favorite of the Motown labels, and let me just shorten this by saying if it says Miracles, it is most definitely a favorite of mine!

Kim Weston was in town recently. I understand she attended the funeral services for the stepfather of Otis Williams.
