@YosemiteBride: This is such a great question!

Here we go:

Come Go with Me – The Del Vikings

Dreamlover – Bobby Darin (not really Motown, but great song)

Be My Baby – The Ronnetts

My Girl – Temptations 

 Stop! In the Name of Love – Supremes

I Can’t Help Myself – Four Tops


Try this link there are so many. I have such great memories of my parents dancing to these songs when I was little.

Love, love, love motown.  I actually created a “Motown” station on Pandora- great way to get some inspiration.  But here’s a few to get you started…

I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)- Four Tops

I Heard It Through The Grapevine- Marvin Gaye

Son of a Preacher Man- Dusty Springfield

Ain’t To Proud To Beg- The Temptations

Let’s Groove Tonight- Earth, Wind & Fire

Check out the incredable documentary film “Standing In The Shadows of Motown”. It will give you an entirely new understanding of what Motown was as well as more ideas about dance floor fillers.

Not so much “MoTown” but there are some great 70ish songs that all older generations seem to love:

September – Earth, Wind, and Fire

We are family – Sister Sledge

Aint no mountain high enough – Marvin Gaye

Get down tonight – KC and the Sunshine Band

These are just a few that older crowds seem to really love!

You could get the soundtrack to the Big Chill. It’s mostly Motown songs.

Motown is a specific record label that it is also, in some circles, considered an R&B genre. Many famous R&B stars from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s were never on the Motown label.

Have you spoken with your Wedding Entertainment Planner (DJ) about this? Any professional Wedding DJ would know and own Classic R&B and Motown and they would help you select the right music for you and your guests.

If this is a DIY ipod wedding, you might download some of these tunes off Amazon or buy the entire collection.
