Sitting here today listening to a good mix of music from YouTube. Oh my gosh, taking me back. Amazing how they can make me feel young again, wishing I was cruising down a road with the windows open, fresh air in my face, listening to Marvin, Sammy, Temptations, Al Green........ so many more. Of course I can't think of any more names to write...........

I remember when Marvin's "War... " came out and our country was stuck in Vietnam...... such an emotional time (for me). And I get that feeling every time I hear it.

I am with you. Good songs often with a significant message that we connected with. I have liked music every decade and enjoy much of todays music. However those are classics you mention.

HollyhockGarden: I know the song you are talking about.

But there is just something about soul music. And the performers who sang them. I do not care what anyone says, black performers have got so much talent. Something about their voices? I am not sure what it is. But I like it.

Here is a superb Supremes song that is not really well-known, but I really love it. Listening to it right now, alone in my hotel!


I LOVE Motown, and have seen lots of concerts, even if they were imposters!

I caught part of an interview with her last week. She is still performing at age 85. I remember Downtown was one of the few songs my parents liked from that era.

Smile Concert

Last year, I got to see Gladys Knight! She put on such a good show and she is 76.

Seeing her again this year in February.

Excellent show.

A lot of these Motown songs you could really dance to and they were upbeat, made you feel happy.

I totally agree. I was listening to a Marvin Gaye DVD in the car recently. Ahhhh. What a decade for outstanding, timeless music. The Temptations, Aretha, Dylan, Country Joe & the Fish, the British invasion, The Beatles, Moody Blues, Three Dog Night, Janis Joplin. There is good music in every decade, but the 60s was special. It doesn't get any better than that.

Some amazing soundtracks to movies, too. Like The Big Chill (the music was from the 60s), Easy Rider, Help!, The Good the Bad and the Ugly.

Tom Jones also burst onto the scene in the 60s. Tom Jones in his heyday, singing Delilah or It's Not Unusual. He had a tv show, too. Johnny Cash had some big hits, too.
