Motown -- how sweet it is

September 14, 2008

In her On The Spot column on Aug. 31 ["Flier Frostbite"], Catharine Hamm describes sitting on a flight listening to Motown sounds of the '70s: "You're doing nothing but losing body heat and killing brain cells with bad music."

That kisses off landmark albums by Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder and such classic singles as Diana Ross' "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," the Temptations' "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" and the Commodores' "Easy."

I'm glad Hamm is a travel writer and not a music critic.
