It’s a pretty bleary day in the NY/NJ area. You know what that means? Pump up the volume on your favorite Spotify “rainy day” playlist and push on through your work day. I’m going to flip that on it’s head though. Instead of listening to songs that make you feel like your having SAD (Sudden Acute Depression) in your freshman year dorm room why not listen to some music that make’s you feel like your at a July 4th BBQ. Motown is perfect for that. It just makes you feel happy.
I am going to go see the musical “Motown” in September and I really cannot wait. The music is timeless. Listening to The Temptations or The Supremes makes me think back to when I was kid riding with my mom screaming the lyrics to the song. So turn off that Damien Rice or John Mayer playlist and groove to some Detroit soul.
1. The Temptations- Ain’t Too Proud To Beg
2. The Isley Brothers- This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak For You)
3. JR Walker & The All-Stars- Shotgun
4. The Supremes- Come See About Me
5. The Mirales- Shop Around
