Embarassment solely for the narrator of the song, or for other characters involved? ???

"Motown" is based mainly on the songwriting team of Lamont/Dozier/Holland as well as songs written by Smokey Robinson, and any of the artists who recorded for the label in the 60s and 70s (it goes into the 80s as well, but definitely not in the same spirit). Phil could enter "Please Mr. Postman" on that basis.

This should prepare everyone for the same category in a later Artistry round.

See, that was what I meant about "the 80s ...definitely not the same spirit". Same for the 90s. 8-P Really, stick to anything before Diana Ross' "Upside Down".

Although when people think of Motown, they think of the 60s heyday with The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye etc....technically anything released on the Motown label is eligible....songs can cross a number of genres
