Following our popular recent rundown of The Top 10 Motown Albums, we thought we’d dive even deeper into the Hitsville universe to bring you 100 indispensable tracks from Berry Gordy’s pop and soul powerhouse – originally published in MOJO 183. All of the artists included in the playlist below made an indelible mark on the label, each song contributing to the development and influence of the Motown sound and philosophy. In all honesty, we could have doubled the size of this playlist, such is the abundance of riches produced by Motown over the last five decades. But for now, check out our selections and then let us know what you would include in your own 100. And how do you feel about our Senior Editor’s insistence – albeit at #99 – on Lionel Richie’s All Night Long (All Night)?
