Episode 53

Episode date - June 19, 2009

How Music Changed

    In the previous four or five shows, we’ve implied that Motown appeared to be struggling for relevance, while the ratio of hits started to dwindle.

    This show puts the lie to any of that, as it contains a higher ratio of hits than any other show in this series. A full seven of the eleven songs we feature reached the top 40. Here’s our list;

    1) The Love You Save – The Jackson 5

    2) The End of Our Road – Marvin Gaye

    3) Just Another Morning – Michael Denton

    4) Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours – Stevie Wonder

    5) War – Edwin Starr

    6) It’s a Shame – The Spinners

    7) Do You See My Love for You Growing – Jr. Walker & the All Stars

    8) The Day Will Come Between Sunday and Monday – Kiki Dee

    9) Everybody’s Got the Right To Love – The Supremes

    10) We Can Make It Baby – The Originals

    11) Stay a Little Longer – Yvonne Fair
