Seventies Soul - My Birthday Playlist
Anyway, on to the November playlist. Since I was born in the Seventies (though I don't really remember them), this month's playlist is titled Seventies Soul and includes a bunch of my favorite - yep, you guessed it - Seventies soul music. Now, soul music is generally defined as an African-American invented genre than incorporates aspects of R&B, gospel and jazz. The first track might surprise you because it's a pretty deep cut from a singer known more for gospel than soul, but I had to include it because it's one of my all-time favorite songs ever. There are also classics like "Superfly" from Curtis Mayfield, and tracks from the likes of Bobby Womack, the Isley Brothers and a glorious live version of Bill Wither's singing "Use Me." Maybe it's because I was born in that era, but these songs absolutely sooth my soul. I hope you enjoy this playlist as much as I enjoyed making it.
