I was raised listening to Motown. My mom used to put it on while I danced around the living room, twirling around in circles to make my skirt spin out. I was also raised in the rain - growing up in the quaint hippie town of Eugene, Oregon where it rains a solid 8 months out of the year.
To this day I always find myself wanting to listen to Motown on rainy days - nostalgia is truly a force to be reckoned with. So on this gloomy, rainy day in NYC, it's been nothing but Smokey Robinson & the Miracles on rotation. One of my favorites:
It's romantic, it's sexy...it's a vibe, the best vibe as far as I'm concerned.
