Bring Soul Back!
First of all, all of you have to at least know two songs out of this list. Listed are some of my favorite soul songs that I like to listen to. If you need an absolute "pick-me-up" though, Sly And The Family Stone is epic. It has to be one of my favorite songs ever. This post is quite a deviation from my usual posts but I've been listening to a lot of 60's and 70's music lately and that's how this list came about. Hope you all enjoy!
Sly And The Family Stone - Everyday People
Sam Cooke - Wonderful World
Otis Redding - Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay
Bill Withers was quite a soul maestro. Other than the two famous songs listed below, he also sang "Ain't No Sunshine" and although it's a great song, I figured it would be a downer on a list that's pretty happy clappy. Enjoy singing along to Lean On Me. If anyone is a fan of Anchorman starring Will Ferrel, Use Me is played in the background at a pool party in the movie. That was an absolute useless fact that you will never use. You're welcome!
Bill Withers - Lean On Me
Bill Withers - Use Me
Finally, if you've seen Tarantino's Death Proof, then you'll know this song. And if you don't, well it's listed below so click on it and start learning.
The Coasters - Down In Mexico
