Yesterday, Today, & FOREVER The King of Pop

THE 50 SONGS THAT HAD MOTOWN DANCING IN THE STREET


Motown singer Marvin Gaye

With
the legendary label’s smooth and soulful tunes, stress is not an
emotion associated with Motown, but a four week agony of choice has
ended with the release of its fans’ favourite fifty greatest tracks.

To celebrate January’s 50th Anniversary of Motown Records,
arguably the greatest record label ever, Universal Music is releasing
Motown 50, a compilation of tracks chosen by fans worldwide. The fans
were polled during four weeks in October using social networking
internet sites.

The
Detroit-based label was founded by Berry Gordy as Tamla Records on
January 12, 1959, and incorporated as Motown Record Corporation in
1960.

Marvin Gaye,
The Supremes, Stevie Wonder and the Four Tops are just some of the
all-time great Motown artistes.


The compilation, Motown 50 – Today, Tomorrow, Forever…, is released on
December 1.
