Motown truly took off exactly 50 years ago. The Detroit label landed some big hits before 1963, but that year saw the release of Stevie Wonder's "Fingertips," Martha and the Vandellas' "Heat Wave" as well as Marvin Gaye's "Pride and Joy" and "Can I Get a Witness." It was also the first year that many people first heard songs from the Temptations and the Supremes, who would both go on to score an incredible run of hits through the next decade.

Now we have a question for you: What is your favorite Motown song? Feel free to pick from any era of the label, from the Miracles' "Shop Around" in 1960 to Steve Wonder's "Superstition" in 1973 to Boyz II Men's "End of the Road" in 1992. Vote for whatever Motown song you want, but please just vote once and only for a single song. 

Remember, the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson's earliest solo work counts, but from 1979's Off the Wall on, he wasn't on Motown and therefore it doesn't count.
