Motown 50


Motown Records are celebrating 50 years by putting their library to the vote!

You can decide the fifty favourite Motown tracks that will be compiled on a special release coming out on December 1st to mark Motown's 50th Anniversary.

If you're a bit rusty, the official voting website has all the listings to choose from, audition online, and you can put your favourites in order. There's also another official Motown 50 website which gives you a bit more of the classic Motown feel. I particuarly liked the downloads section where I now have a classic picture of Stevie Wonder in front of his piano from 1967, as my PC wallpaper.

What seemed like an impossible task, here's my Top 5 Motown tracks:
  1. MARVIN GAYE - Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)
  2. EDWIN STARR - Twenty Five Miles
  3. TEMPTATIONS - Papa Was A Rollin' Stone
  4. DIANA ROSS - Ain't No Mountain High Enough
  5. ISLEY BROTHERS - This Old Heart Of Mine
