Me and the roomies are having a party tonight. (yes, I know that sentence that is grammatically incorrect and I don’t care.) I am preparing a Serious Kick Ass Motown playlist. [Technically Sam Cooke and a couple other of these artists weren’t on the Motown Label but they’re close enough.] People will want to shake their bootie.

Go ahead and prepare this play list at home at tell me that your bootie doesn’t shake.

Without further delays, here is the playlist:

  1. My Girl The Temptations
  2. The Tracks Of My Tears Smokey Robinson & The Miracles
  3. Baby I Need Your Lovin’ The Four Tops
  4. Don’t Mess With Bill The Marvelettes
