Motown frenzy

About two weeks ago there was a wonderful documentary on Sky Arts TV about Motown, with some great facts, like how in the early days, Smokey Robinson songwriter and performer teamed up with Berry Gordy to write songs the first Motown songs and how competitive they were, how Motown stable of songwriters wrote songs, and how Smokey Robinson wrote Mary Wells hit My Guy and was ridiculed when he said he was going to write a song with a similiar title, My Girl, for Jimmy Ruffin, I think of the Temptations.
Anyway two weeks on and I’ve gone and brought a heap of Motown compilation albums and growing.

Now there’s some sad things known to man
But ain’t too much sadder than
A Motown Fan
