Liked the choreography of Motown's groups: Temptations, Four Tops, Supremes, etc. Motown's in house prep department was great.

 

And give a shout out to the Funk Brothers, Motowns in house band.

I couldn't get enough of the Statler Brothers. Their voices were great and they were also funny at times. Loved their take off on some scriptures.

I was a huge Beatles fan in my early teen years. But my Motown favorites were Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Four Tops. All good music that has stood the test of time. Were the BeeGees actually Motown? Loved them too.

I am more of a classical music person, I enjoy Canadian Brass, I used to love Les Double Six de Paris, and of composers the good old classics:  Mozart, Brahms, Beethoven, etc.  Of the more recent composers:  Rimsky-Korsakoff, John Williams, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Mussorgsky.  But that's me, it's not your typical bunch, but I listen to anything and everything by these musicians.

From Motown?  Gotta be Smokey and The Miracles.  And give a nod to the Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting trio.
