The Motown record label built a unified house of sound so immediately recognizable that "Motown" became an unequivocal, stand-alone style. In the '60s, the Detroit label helmed by Berry Gordy, Jr. became the largest independent operation in the industry on the strength of its sophisticated, smooth combination of memorable pop and R&B melodies. At the Motown label, the pop element of the formula become more dominant than ever, helping the records find wider audiences. The velvety elegance of the Motown sound helped entrench popular black music into the mainstream culture of America. Motown frequently deployed the same session players on their recordings, which helped in establishing the distinctive Motown rhythms of echoing drums and bouncing bass. Often, the arrangements were also elaborate and lush with the addition of extra percussion, piano, woodwinds, horns, strings, or anything else that could enhance the urbane stylishness of the music. This smooth pop songcraft, when paired with the polished, soulful singing on the Motown roster, became universally popular in the early part of the '60s, with such songwriters as the crew of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Eddie Holland and the powerhouse Smokey Robinson shining up one pop jewel after another with assembly-line-like consistency. When Holland, Holland, and Dozier left the record label after a disagreement about royalties, Norman Whitfield emerged as a formative Motown producer. He kept the record label abreast of the funkier, harder direction into which soul music started heading. The Jackson 5, with their bubblegum funk, became superstars in 1970, and they indicated that the Motown sound was starting to depart from its previous formulas. For the rest of the '70s, artists like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye took more leadership in their own material, imbuing their songs with their distinctive characters and helping disrupt the entrenched Motown template. It is this template, however, that people refer to when they tag tunes as "Motown" – a template which brought acts such as the Supremes, the Four Tops, and the Temptation to stardom.
The lavish Magic of Motown production brings to life such all-time classics as "Dancing in the Street", "Blame It on the Boogie", "I'll Be There", "I Want You Back", "My Girl", "Ain't Too Proud to Beg", "Get Ready", "Why Do Fools Fall in Love", "I'm Coming Out", "Heatwave", "All Night Long", "Endless Love", "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted", "My Guy", "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours", and "Stop in the Name of Love". These songs are the works of such legendary Motown artists as the Jackson 5, Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Lionel Richie, the Commodores, Gladys Knight & the Pips, the Isley Brothers, Marvin Gaye, the Temptations, the Four Tops, Diana Ross & the Supremes, and Stevie Wonder.
For a short time in the history of Saturday morning cartoons, The Jackson 5ive aired on ABC in 1971 and 1972. This psychedelic, colorful cartoon featured the Motown icons Jackson Five – Michael, Marlon, Jermaine, Tito, and Jackie – having adventures and jamming.
