Side tracks

It's hard to post three videos and do justice to the Motown era. Here are a few of my personal faves, starting with Smokey..

The Temptations had a lot of hits, but for some reason this one stands out to me.

All aboard with the O'Jays...

"Backstabbers" and "For the Love of Money" were also huge hits for them in the 70s, but Love Train was just an upbeat and positive song, perfect for the times. To me that's the difference between the generations. Yes the wars are different but it seems like those opposed nowadays don't seem to have the same "peace, love and understanding" feel, rather it's more a violent and hateful pushback for some reason. Maybe it's the lack of a draft, or maybe I'm just getting old.
