    Best Motown CD You Can Find

    Motown was and is the best music ever. When I listened to this CD in the car I felt so happy and excited. It has all the greatest motown hits. Now in days you don't hear music like this anymore. They should make Motown music today. Overall this is one of the greatest CD's i've listened to in a while.
