Subject: Artistry 2 Round 77 (Motown) Enter by 06/14/16

Written By: ThaConqueror on 06/01/16 at 1:05 am

Too wide a field to do a pun with this one, so just get ready for the Motown round!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Artistry Rules For Newcomers:
- If one wishes to enter (entry in all rounds is not compulsory), entry must be written (or selected from back catalog) within two weeks of the posting of the entry thread
- Voting runs during the same two-week period as the next entry thread, so organise your time wisely
- All participants must comment on all entrants and vote by the deadline.  Failure to vote will forfeit all points from that round, but it won't disqualify you from participating in the next round
- Voting will take place by replying to the appropriate voting thread
- If a person withdraws from an Artistry Round prior to the end of a round, all entrants who voted for that person's entry will be permitted to pick one new song to earn a bonus point, all other songs will be realigned accordingly.  There will be no penalty on those who don't change their vote.
- Once a vote is posted, it cannot be changed UNLESS rule 3 applies OR there was a double-vote by accident.
- Late entries will be accepted until the 1st vote has been posted.
- The deadline is a strict deadline, the moment the date has reached the day after the deadline, no votes will count, this is to reduce last minute voting, or sympathy/favoritism towards different entrants.

Soooooooo do artists like Ne-Yo, Beyonce, or Akon count because they are technically on the MOTOWN record label?

Not that I want to do any of those but perhaps a BLUE OCTOBER parody because it's a Alt Rock band on a MOTOWN label...

Really though, in the spirit of the thing, you should be doing a parody from the company's 60s and 70s output. Not for me to judge one way or the other. wiki  points out they haven't really been "Motown" per se since 2005, when they merged with Uhiversal, and of the prior legacy only Stevie Wonder still records with them.

I think I'm going to do a 98° parody since they're offically on the Motown label before the 2005 cut off point
