Do you mean Motown as in Smokey Robinson and the Temptations? Diana Ross and the Supremes? Marvin Gaye, and Rick James? I love it too! I'm pretty sure Motown is a record label. It's basically R&B kind of stuff... music during the 60's. Anyways, if you download some songs from the people I mentioned above I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of them at the moment. But they are really good!

The above link has a good amount of information on Motown and includes examples of the bands/singers associated with it.
All hail Wikipedia!

Motown is both a record label and it's now considered a genre too. I think it's a contraction of Motor and Town named after Detroit where it started

Yup, I love Motown. I grew up near Detroit and I love sixties music of all kinds. Yes, as people have mentioned it was a record label but now is considered a genre in itself. It is a contraction of "Motor" and "Town," named for Detroit, also known as "The Motor City."

Some artists are: The Temptations, Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, Aretha Franklin, Tammi Tarrell, The Jackson 5, and Stevie Wonder.
