If you're between 30 and 40 years old, you probably learned to dance by watching "American Bandstand." In the 1960s, the platinum age of rock dancing, the best dancing records were unquestionably made by Motown. Whenever groups of teen-agers gathered--in Chicago, down in New Orleans, in New York City, all you'd hear is music, sweet music, there'd be music everywhere--here were the singles they played. Ten fast. Five slow. Make you want to holler, throw up both your hands. Cue 'em up and give 'em a 98:
