Some people laugh at me when I tell them that old 60s soul music is hands down one of my favorite genres. There is so much heart in that music that it is able to shine on its own without the work of technicians in a studio or heavy instrumental. This music is about the life in a persons voice. Soul music is the music that comes from the gut, its music that sounds like if that person did not get that out at that moment that they would just explode. Thats passion. Thats music.
The following is a song from one of my favorites Irma Thomas. Just listen and enjoy. And then don't look at me funny when you get in my car and "Soul Town" is the station on the radio and this music is blaring out my speakers.
