why they call it motown
Motown is a record label, not a group. Motown is now Motown Universal, but I suspect you're asking about Motown Classic. Motown Classic produced artists such as The Temptations, The Jackson 5, Rick James, Gladys Knight and the Pipps, Martha and the Vandellas, Aretha Franklin, The Four tops, The Commodores, etc. In the event that you do not know who these artists are, I suggest going to the Classic Motown website, and then downloading at least 3 tracks from each artist.
