Discord and Rhyme: An Album Podcast

19-11-2019 • 1 hr 4 mins

It's the first episode of our new series covering Motown's Number 1 hits! This is an amazing compilation that includes every single Motown song that ever hit number 1 on any chart. Obviously this is an amazing batch of songs, and we love talking about them. In this episode: a brief history of the label, much gushing over the amazing Motown sound, and many references to our 1980s childhoods. NOTE: Amanda misspoke badly when talking about the Miracles, who broke up in 1972, not 1992.

The Contours - Do You Love Me
