Check out this (IMO) superior version of "Good luck charm". (Go to 40 seconds if you wanna skip the chat).

In regards to the original topic, my top 3 are:

The Supremes
Stevie Wonder
The Temptations

With classic Motown songs like "Baby Love", "You Can't Hurry Love", "Stop! In the Name of Love", "My Girl", "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone", "Get Ready", "For Once In My Life", "Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)", "Superstition" and more between them - they ain't a bad trio of acts!

Exactly. She's the dream woman!

I know this is derailing the thread but you guys have got to see her do "Blue Moon". This version is simply amazing, just sit back and watch the whole performance. Give it a bit of time and she gets really into the song starting about 1 minute in - I love the unique phrasing she adopts throughout.
