    It’s my first time to hear the first two songs. Love this Diana Ross song but Endless Love is my favorite.

    Happy MM Steve!

    I can’t say with complete certainity that I remember these Motown hits, but I love the retro sound period even if I don’t recall them. It just reminds me of my childhood. These would have been songs my auntie would have been playing on her stereo, though, and then we would dance together.

    Thanks for joining us on Monday’s Music Moves Me!

    Whoa! Diana Ross so young in that vid. I love What Does It Take… somehow I thought there were similarities with something that goes ‘baby, don’t make me wait for love this time…’ Ops, that’s probably the one with Kenny G. These songs are whirling in my head and I’m rambling. Better shout hallelujah now and be on my way 😀
