Can you name the band that backed these 1960s musical acts?

Will you be "Dancing in the Street" over your score?

In the 1960s, the Motown Sound was just getting started and some of its biggest players had some of the longest band names. 

Unlike The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, these acts often had famous singers and frontmen who'd stick their own name on the front of the name and then name his or her band according to their own style. 

Below, we've removed just the band from the names of music acts from the Sixties and given you a clue to their biggest hit songs. It's up to you to plug the right band in to complete the name correctly every time. 

"Everyday People" need not apply, but giant '60s fans will fly right through it. Good luck!
