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?

Least Favorite Song By.....Gladys Knight

As requested

With the Pips or solo

Iíll admit I donít know Gladysí work nearly as well as Marvinís but of the songs I do know Iíd say Friendship Train

Always thought it was on the goofy side

My second answer is neither one of us

Thereís nothing wrong with the song itself but it ranks high on my list of Ďsongs that bum me outí

No matter how good a mood Iím in I will do a complete 180 if I listen to this song

When it comes on when Iím in the car I canít change the station fast enough
