Instagram Public Photos with #motown

It all started 60 years ago today.
on jan. 12, 1959 berry gordy, jr. secured an $800 loan from his family trust to start his own record label, and today, the motown sound is just as powerful as ever. #motowndiditfirst #motown 📸: tony spina/detroit free press

🎶 now if there's a smile on my face
it's only there trying to fool the public
but when it comes down to fooling you
now honey that's quite a different subject 🎶 #smokeyrobinson #tearsofaclown *
no smiles for #mao today as she’s all serious and brooding #chiefmischiefmaker #seriousface #restingbritface #musictoliveby #soundtracktomylife
