->''"[[FracturedFairyTale Once upon a time]] in a kingdom known as {{Detroit}}, there lived a young warrior named Berry … [who] took on the ways of the minstrel, and he began to write songs for others to sing. And a local celebrity, Sir Jackie of Wilson, heard some of the songs and put them on circular platters called “discs.” And the townspeople liked the sounds that emanated from the pressed discs, and turned them into something called “hits.” … So Berry went out on a great quest, and he found Miracles and [[StevieWonder Wonders]] and [[OddNameOut Marvelettes]]. And he brought the discoveries to a secret place called Hitsville, and there he taught them wondrous things. There was young Smokey of Robinson, and Mary of Welles, and Martha of the Vandellas. [[MarvinGaye Marvin of the Gaye]] and Tammi of Terrell. And there were Pips and Knights named Gladys. And Temptations and Tops, Contours and Spinners. And before anyone realized what was happening, it happened: Hitsville became like its name."''

* MilestoneCelebration: The page quote comes from ''Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever'', an Creator/{{NBC}} special aired in May 1983 to commemorate the label's anniversary. While it reunited many of their best acts for some heartwarming moments, it's best known nowadays for Music/MichaelJackson's first moonwalk. It even got briefly featured in NBC's 75th anniversary special in 2002 as one of the channel's defining moments.
