Re: What's your favorite Motown hit?

How can you pick a favorite when it's Motown?  They are all wonderful and forever.  Love everything Motown.

So many songs for sure I'm sure I couldn't pick one. 

 

Smokestack Lightening/Howlin Wolf is my ringtone.

I esp. like "Midnight Train to Georgia" and "[I Am] Everyday People." 

 

Aretha's "Natural Woman."

 

Earlier?  "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" and "Save the Last Dance for Me."

 

So many great songs.  Anything Sam Cooke ever sang, though he's a bit early for the full "Wall of Sound" effect.

Way too many to mention, but I sure did enjoy the special last night.  I do love Hurts So Bad from Little Anthony and the Imperials, it was included last night.

I love them all, but "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" is a big favorite.
