10 Feb #MUSICMONDAY: MOTOWN LOVE
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, this Detroiter wants to show you some Motown love on #MusicMonday.
Motown Records had a special connection to me before during and after my birth.
My parents would regale me with stories about how, when they first married, they would see the Temptations, Four Tops, and Marvin Gaye all in one night. I mean–come on!!
While pregnant with me, my mom’s doctor was just across the road from the Motown headquarters-she said she would always peek to see if would see one of the Supremes (whose insurance her boss handled!) would come out the front door.
Cut to a seven year old Christos, begging his parents to go KFC six times in one week to gather bucket labels- all to receive the four album set of the final Vegas performance of those same Supremes.
Yeah, Motown and its songs of love and yearning and break up and make up–are truly unforgettable.
This Valentine’s Day, put on some Smokey for your mate. And let love take over.
