    A pretty ridiculous list. They should have kept the Supremes songs for another list, at least.

    And yes, IWS has no place on any 'top' list except for Gloria Gaynor's and perhaps Cake's.

    I'm Living in Shame is pretty embarrassing but at least it's got a good melody and chorus. Just needed lyrics that don't make you vomit.

    I always thought [[just my imagination really) that when H-D-H left Motown they took a couple of songs with them.

    And one of them was 'Band of Gold' which was intended for Martha & The Vees.

    Actually, listening to Symphony and a couple of other snippets from the 'trailer' I was expecting a bit more of a 're-imagining'.

    Oh - I just created a thread in Motown forum about this album as hadn't heard anything about it.

    It looks to debut in the UK charts at about #17.

    Motown: A Symphony of Soul

    While looking at the UK mid-week album charts [[to see how Diana's 'Thank You' album is doing]], I noticed a new album currently sitting at #17.

    The album features original vocals by Motown...

    Horrible album.

    Mirror Mirror & Never Too Late are about the only decent songs on it.

    Work That Body could never have been released any other year than this. And the solo Endless Love is...

    Yep - that looks like a typical Glastonbury. The legends slot is usually late afternoon so it is still in daylight.

    And a guaranteed broadcast on BBC, which I'm sure many of us will enjoy watching.

    I expect the album to plummet out of the top ten next week - possibly out of the top 100. This seems to be the case with many albums by legacy performers - a big first week and then next to nothing.

    Darlene was still singing with the Blossoms in the early 70s and then concentrated on raising her family, so she would probably have not been available.

    She has one of the best pop voices around...

    After a couple of these, the crowd would either be heading to the bar, the toilet or standing there and screaming out 'Sing Baby Love'.

    Promising for Diana.

    However, the ABBA album 'Voyage' [[currently #1 in the midweek charts) has apparently sold more than the rest of the top 40 put together.

    Four songs from 'diana' on this chart showing what an amazing album it was.
  20. Billy Bragg: 'Stoned Love - the song I turn to'

    I've always liked Billy Bragg's music [[hence my user name) and he's long been known as a lover of Motown music.

    But I didn't realise 'Stoned Love' was one of his musical favourites until reading...

    The campy disco song 'My Knight in Black Leather' sure has a Jabara-feel to it.
