When the Sound of the Motor City is more than a song and the titles and lyrics are coded love messages.  Berry Gordy, Jr., and Michael Alonzo Hanks were once great friends and worked for the Chrysler Company together.  After works they would "hangout" with each other and write songs.  One of the girls that they both loved and also wrote songs with them was Mary Wells.  A very bitter dispute comes up and Mary goes with Berry to Motown, leaving Mike disponded.  Mary has her titles on the songs which are crafted by the songwriting team, but clearly the messages are to Mike, that she still cares for him.
