**MIXTAPE ALERT** Ladies of Motown
Mixtape Alert is back. It's been awhile due to 8tracks deciding to completely change their site and partly due to those frantic curve balls life likes to throw at you sometimes.
The intense, high energy pop songs of the sixties girls groups have rarely been repeated in pop history mainly because it's so hard to top them. From The Supremes breathy, girlish vocals to The Velvelettes fun-filled, schoolgirl lyrics these girls made singing songs about boys, love and heartbreak a fine art.
I mainly just wanted to post about the amazing girls and the beautiful songs they made.
