I got to thinking about it, and there’s something that that was underrepresented in last week’s playlist: Soul Music. So, here are eighteen soul classics by nine soul artists that were big in the 1960’s, for your listening pleasure. I’ve tested this playlist as thoroughly as possible, so there should be no problems with it playing here, but you know YouTube….
- The Four Tops, “Standing In The Shadows Of Love”
- The Four Tops, “Bernadette”
- The Temptations, “Just My Imagination”
- The Temptations, “I Can’t Get Next To You”
- Martha & The Vandellas, “Heat Wave”
- Martha & The Vandellas, “Nowhere To Run”
- Edwin Starr, “Twenty Five Miles”
- Edwin Starr, “War”
- Otis Redding, “Cigarettes and Coffee”
- Otis Redding, “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay”
- The Supremes, “Baby Love”
- The Supremes, “Stop! In The Name Of Love”
- James Brown, “I Feel Good”
- James Brown, “It’s A Man’s World”
- Wilson Pickett, “Land Of 1000 Dances”
- Wilson Pickett, “In The Midnight Hour”
- Aretha Franklin, “Chain Of Fools”
- Aretha Franklin, “I Say A Little Prayer”

I did the same thing as you but from a totally different angle. Loved this playlist; so many great memories here. I even had a couple of the 45’s. You’re right, soul/Motown was underrepresented. Happy you are fixing that now. Alana ramblinwitham
I’ll do Philly in a couple of weeks. This was about 50/50 Detroit and Memphis. It’s all good…
Great set of music! I always enjoy what you bring. The guy who looks a bit like Eddie Murphy Edwin Starr, I didn’t know he did this song. He has quite the voice
Starr didn’t cross over as much as the others did. He was very popular on the R&B charts.
Excellent playlist, John! I did the same thing as you keeping with last week’s theme. Have a boogietastic week, my friend!
Glad you liked it!
Love this playlist!
Thanks! Soul was a big factor in music in the ’60’s. It really deserved a playlist of its own.
