Motowniest Non Motown Song?

What non Motown label song do you think sounds most like a Motown Song?

Covers of Motown songs donít count

I would say Cool Jerk by the Capitols but if I remember right wasnít it all Funk Brothers playing on it? Which to me would disqualify it

I always thought that Karma Chameleon by Boy George had a Motownesque feel to it

When the Motown sound became a phenomenon a lot of labels and artists tried to emulate it

Who do you think did it the best?

Birthday greetings to....

The great Smokey Robinson, who turns 79 years old today. Many thanks for your great contributions to Motown! :D

Also, today would have been the birthdays of two other Motown alums, Bobby Rogers of the Miracles and publicist Al Abrams.

Got To Be Real - Cheryl Lynn

I LOVE this classic track from Cheryl Lynn!!! However, I'm trying to find a version of the song I recall hearing AGES ago with a interlude in which Cheryl sings "zoo-zoo, zoo-zoo, zoo-zoo" or something along those lines.

I have the original album version and the single version neither of which have this bit in it!! Does anyone know what I mean and could help me out? Thanks guys! :D
