I'm a fan of "Under the Boardwalk." Hannah and some friends performed it at a Mayflower talent show.

They weren't too bad either!

I have to correct my mom--it was "Dancing in the Street" by Martha Reeves and the Vandelles. Sorry Mom.

My favorite is "O-O-H Child" by the 5 Stair Steps.

I can't stop the rain...(The Commitments revived that in 1991)
Heard it thru the grapevine...(from the Big Chill movie)
Mustang Sally...
Just my imagination...
Killing me softly...(roberta flack & in '96 Fugees - that girl is great)...
Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

There are so many things that I love about Motown music: the sometimes spoken words while the music plays in the background, the orchestrations, the sincerity, the choreography, the full hair, the matching costumes, and the class.

Some favorite Motown tunes of mine include:

"Baby I'm Yours"
"Everybody Plays the Fool"
"Please Mr. Postman"

Thank you very much for yours!

Post scrip: What about "Stand by Me?" I was at a cafe when I heard it yesterday and nearly died!
