When Berry Gordy founded Motown Records in 1959, few people could have predicted how it would soon transform the entire music industry. Gordy had a remarkable ear for talent and within months, he joined forces with many of the greatest songwriters, musicians and singers in the country.

Before the first year was over, Motown scored their first major hit with Barrett Strong's "Money (That's What I Want)."

We asked our readers to select their single favorite Motown song. Click through to see the results.
