  1. Rovereab, I agree. Marvin & Tammi's "You're All...

    Rovereab, I agree. Marvin & Tammi's "You're All I Need To Get By" is one of the most beautiful records Motown ever released. In one of the Motown books, it was reported that when Ashford & Simpson...

    YVONNE FAIR - "Walk Out The Door If You Wanna"

    Ten years, one wig, and a house full of kids
    That's all I get from marriage to you
    Seven days a week you're running the streets
    Take me for...

    SMOKEY ROBINSON & THE MIRACLES - "The Love I Saw In You Was Just A Mirage"

    Just a minute ago your love was here
    All of a sudden it seemed to disappear
    The way you wrecked my life was like...

    Hey lockhartgary, these are fun, man! Once you start, you can't stop! Motown's lyricists were, without a doubt, the best in the business! (But we already knew that!)

    STEVIE WONDER - "I Was Made To Love Her"

    I was knee-high to a chicken
    When that love bug bit me
    I had the fever with each passing year
    Even if the mountain tumbles
    If this whole world crumbles...
  6. THE TEMPTATIONS - "GLASSHOUSE" My girl came...

    THE TEMPTATIONS - "GLASSHOUSE"

    My girl came home and she caught me with Alice
    And she threw me out the door
    Now, now
    But the real reason she was so mad is that she was with Alice before!
    Say...

    THE MARVELETTES - "The Day You Take One (You Have To Take The Other)"

    A little bad comes along with every good
    You've gotta take the bitter with the sweet
    True love never runs smooth like we...

    I like that song, too!
  9. Yeah, Tom, the version we're used to usually...

    Yeah, Tom, the version we're used to usually remains the one we favor most. I just got out the two versions and compared them. Other than the lead vocals, Martha's version has back-up vocals,...
  10. Yeah, like most of Smokey's stuff, they were ALL...

    Yeah, like most of Smokey's stuff, they were ALL winners. This was as frustrating as the Four Tops top 5 list. Out of all those great singles and LP tracks, how do you pick just 5? I also had been...
  11. Yeah, Marv, I agree. Imagination and creativity...

    Yeah, Marv, I agree. Imagination and creativity were at an all-time low with that purple album. Gotta wonder what Bonnie thought about it.
  12. Reese, I don't remember much about the details of...

    Reese, I don't remember much about the details of that second, purple album. I had both LP's on vinyl at the time, but I ditched my entire record collection back in 1987 when I got into CD's. You...

    Tavares recorded some great stuff. I especially love their "Hard-Core Poetry" and "In The City" CDs. If I had to choose just one of their songs as a favorite, it would be their duet with Freda...

    Spare us the constant, obnoxious arrogance and show some respect to your fellow Motown enthusiasts for a change. Your opinions are not the be-all, end-all gospel!

    Hi John! Sorry my reply is so late. I, too,...

    Hi John! Sorry my reply is so late. I, too, have always wondered why Rhodes-Chalmers-Rhodes were conspicuously missing from Al Green's "The City". But, I've gotta admit, the song is really...

    Wow! I love this! If I didn't know better, I would have sworn it's a previously-unreleased Motown track from the vaults. And you're right, arr&bee -- it's got Levi's name stamped all over it! ...
  17. Other than me, has anyone ever wondered why...

    Other than me, has anyone ever wondered why Bonnie Pointer's only two Motown LP's were BOTH uncleverly titled "Bonnie Pointer"? Even the front-cover photos were similarly styled. Whatever was...

    MARTHA REEVES & THE VANDELLAS - "SWEET DARLIN' ":

    "You're that bright, warm sunshine that fills my every day
    You're the sweet soul music that sets my heart at play
    You're the string around my...

    Really cool thread, Gary!

    MARTHA & THE VANDELLAS - "What Am I Going To Do Without Your Love":

    "I just sit at home by myself like part of the household fixtures
    These arms of mine, don't you...

    "IDENTITY THEFT". I couldn't have said it better myself, Marv. These people may be very good singers in their own right, but they're NOT The Miracles nor will they ever be.
  21. Happy Birthday, Lamont! Hope your special day...

    Happy Birthday, Lamont! Hope your special day has been the best ever! Thank you so much for showering us with the best music this side of Heaven!
  22. At the moment, Marv, my favorite Smokey & The...

    At the moment, Marv, my favorite Smokey & The Miracles tracks are:

    1) Going To A Go-Go
    2) The Tracks Of My Tears
    3) Whole Lotta Shaking Going On (Since I Met You)
    4) More Love
    5) I Second...

    Are you asking me, Native? If you are, I don't know. I don't think I'm familiar with the photo you're referring to.
  24. I couldn't agree more, jobucats. I'm a Tops fan,...

    I couldn't agree more, jobucats. I'm a Tops fan, too, as well as a fan of ALL of the Motown artists. It rubs me the wrong way when certain people can't express their devotion of the Tops without...

    I WAS being honest regarding my opinion.
    You're entitled to your opinion, as are the rest of us.
