I'm young but I'm an old soul.
I love all types of music but I have an affinity for that old soul.
As I'm listening to those smooth groves I feel like I'm going back in time.
So I close my eyes so that I can picture the melody of the sultry pioneers of the Motown sound.
James brown soul brotha number 1 getting down.
Marvin Gaye let know what's going on.
The Jackson five taught me my ABC's.
Smokey Robinson was smooth but wasn't afraid to cry the tears of a clown while cruising the scene.
Stevie Wonder's talent would never bore you.
There wasn't a Mountain high enough to stop MS Diana Ross.
Gladness Knight made you want be on the platform waiting to see her before she left on that midnight train to Georgia.
The quality of the music back then was so impactful.
You hear the passion in every note being sang.
You could feel the intensity from all instruments being played.
Those artist made you forget your troubles and remind you about the splendors of life.
The Motown sound really stirred the soul.
I guess that's why they call it soul music.
They tore down social barriers and changed the world with their art form.
Artist from golden era of Motown will forever be cherished.
Each individual singer and each singing group ld a special place in someone's heart.
They were motivational.
They were sensational.
If I had to call their style anything.... I'd call it soulsatioanl
