Okay, okay I should have given some examples! I actually thought these songs were very well known. Maybe you guys are too young! Now I hope I understand what is being discussed in this thread and I'm not totally off, but if I am, I offer my most humble apologies. Well, here we go:
Stop in the Name of Love-The Supremes
Please Mr. Postman-The Marvelettes (The Beatles covered this btw)
Someday We'll Be Together-The Supremes
Ain't Nothin' Like the Real Thing-Marvin and Tammy
Jimmy Mack-Martha Reeves and the Vandellas(Martha being their favourite American singer at the time!)
Baby I Need Your Loving-The Four Tops
Now if any of these came out after Help!, or are incorrect then just knock them off the list. I'm going by memory here which isn't always very reliable!
Oh, and I'm assuming everyone here knows that the boys were big fans of Motown and were most likely influenced by the music in some way.
