He was Motown’s beloved songwriter and Miracles frontman, the other was one of Motown’s best and brightest stars and Tammi Terrell’s other half on records. Smokey Robinson and Marvin Gaye were two of Motown’s biggest acts and with their talent and hits, they were the object of so many young womens’ affections around the country. Just ask my mom! She loved her some Smokey Robinson! Maybe it was the light eyes of Smokey, the dashing good looks of Marvin, and the pull both men had at Motown (plus, any man that can sing “Crusin'” make the “Star Spangled Banner” alluring is a man every woman loves), whatever it was, in their day, both men had it going on. Don’t believe me? Take a look through our vintage slideshow celebrating their good looks and great contributions to music to see what we’re talking about.
