Pick: What are your Motown and soul preferences?

It's time to decide: Stevie Wonder or Marvin Gaye?

The birth of Motown started in 1959 in Detroit. Motown Records was so successful it achieved 79 records in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 between 1960 and 1969. Motown artists provided us with songs that made us cry, tunes that made us bust a move and albums that inspired change.

Some of these artists included: The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and many more. Many of these artists appeared on classic TV, too.

Soul music in the era was equally important. It paved the way for artists today and brought us immense feelings that still stick with us.

We still listen to them today. Now the question is, if you had to choose, which Motown or soul song would you rather listen to?

  1. Which song are you spending the night dancing to?
  2. Which song are you playing in the background at dinner?
  3. Which of these songs are you playing on a romantic date?
  4. Which of these songs would you listen to on repeat?
  5. Which of these albums would you get autographed if you had the chance?
  6. Which Motown artist would you choose to meet?
  7. Which song is most iconic in your opinion?
  8. Which Motown song is most underrated?
  9. Which Motown song takes you back to the decade?
  10. Which song would you listen to on a rainy day?
  11. Which song gets you in your feels?

Sam Cooke and Etta James were *not* Motown artists. Cooke first recorded for tiny Keen Records, then moved to RCA. Etta James recorded for Chess Records' sister label Cadet.

BTW - 67% similar.

Fifty percent similar...to what, i don't know. Some of these songs I've never heard or even heard of--can't put a melody to them, anyway. So I say we crank the radio up and go find the doofus who thinks you can choose between Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye because there is something wrong with that boy!

3. "My Girl" good, "My Baby" even better (both by The Temptations).
5. All four are outstanding, but Marvin Gaye's What's Going On is generally considered one of the most essential albums.
8. A most underrated of Motown songs is the original version of "Until You Come Back to Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)" by co-writer Stevie Wonder. Originally recorded in 1967 and released a decade later.

I felt this was about the sixties. What's Going On came out in 1971. It doesn't diminish his earlier work, but somehow it is a big step up.
