I don't know anyone who shares my love for Motown. I'm glad I found this community! I love Motown... they basically introduced Soul to America and theres nothing I've found that could match that Motown Sound. I admire Smokey Robinson the most...the best love poet ever, then along with Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, The Four Tops, Martha Reeves and The Vandelles, Mary Wells, and The Supremes. And The Funk Brothers too. They're all great. I just bought Standing In The Shadows of Motown. I can't wait to see it.

Title: A Simple Game (U.K. Single Mix)
Artist: The Four Tops
(Single released in 1972)

As time goes by
You will see
That we're going to be free

You and me, we'll touch the sky
Can't you see in your mind's eye?
That we are one, we're all the same
And life is just a simple game

Oh, do do do
(Do do do)
Do do do
(Do do do)
Oh, do do do
(Do do do do)

There by your side (oh yeah)
I will be (oh yeah)
When this crazy world is free

Free from doubt
When it finds out
Exactly what we're meant to be

That we are one, we're all the same
And life is just a simple game
Oh, do do do
(Do do do)
Oh, do do do
(Do do do)
Do do do
(Do do do do)

Thoughts of another day
Flashing through my head
Thinking how life could be
All of the things that I lately have said

Be what you wanna be
What we deserve to be
What we are meant to be
Oh, do do do
(Do do do)
Oh, do do do
(Do do do)
Oh, do do do
(Do do do do)

As time goes by (oh yeah)
You will see
That we're going to be free

You and me, we'll touch the sky
Can't you see in your mind's eye?
That we are one, we're all the same
And life is just a simple game

[x2] Oh, do do do
(Do do do)
Do do do
(Do do do)
Oh, do do do
(Do do do do)

Ohhh, you and me
(You and me)
We'll touch the sky
(We'll touch the sky)
And touch the sky
Hey, you and me
You and me
Doo doo doo...

Interesting: After working with the Moody Blues on "A Simple Game" in 1972, the Four Tops elected to leave Motown when the corporation relocated its head office from Detroit to California.

I know this is really tough, because there are so many good songs, but I want to know what you all think are the two songs that describe Motown the best. I'll start.

"Ain't Too Proud To Beg"
"Ooh Baby Baby"

My name is Clare, and I am 20 years old. I live in Sterling Heights, MI (subburb of Detroit). I love Motown oh so very much. My favorites are The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.

My all-time favorite artists include The Beatles (that's a given :)), R.E.M., and Queen.

I grew up on Motown. I remember going to my dad's old neighborhood on Detroit's east side to visit his family while he blared Motown the whole 40 minute drive. The more popular ones included The Temptations and Smokey (he and my ma used to listen to them on the front porch back in the day).

Flat out, Motown is simply amazing. Those artists are one of the ONLY good things that ever came out of Detroit.

I'm SO glad I found this community. I give a high five to whoever created it. :)
