I still can’t get enough Motown. It’s some of the best stuff for me to work to in the mornings–happy, complicated, and just so groovy. Here are a few songs** for your Valentine (the playlist mixes its intended genders, mostly because I had to get Marvin Gaye in there):
*I wish Phil Spector wasn’t a convicted murderer, because his “little symphonies for the kids” line is one of the best summaries of why I like the music so much.
**I know Etta James is pushing it on a Motown list, but I couldn’t resist.
I LOOOOOVE motown and motown-like sound. I wish apple had a motown radio station.
Because I am a borderline luddite (maybe I’m actually just lazy)… any suggestions where I might find a channel like this? Does Pandora or Spotify let you filter by label? or 1960-70s soul?
I know you can start with a specific song and Pandora will create a radio station based on that. You can pretty much do the same thing with Spotify, or you could “search playlists” for your motowny key words. I have one going on right here: http://open.spotify.com/user/karenheartstoby/playlist/3Px48e0Pbn3X6ta9W94Vzf
