[Soul] Post your Soul playlists in here!

Hey guys,

 

I wanted to share some of my Soul playlists with you and invite you to add yours too.

 

So what is Soul music? Here's a good description i found on about.com: 

 

Soul music is a combination of R&B and gospel and began in the late 1950s in the United States. Soul diffirentiates from R&B due to its greater emphasis on vocalists and its merging of religious and secular themes.

The 1950s recordings of Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and James Brown are commonly considered the beginnings of soul music.

 

I would like to keep this thread Soul only. I have 2 playlists whihc i really like but one is Soul and Blues, the other is Soul and Jazz. I will not post those here, but maybe in another thread.

 

Here are mine and i'm looking forward to yours. Enjoy!

Hey guys,

 

I created a new playlist, it's mostly soul so i post it here. I read the article on Top 100 greatest songwriters on Rolling Stone:

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/100-greatest-songwriters

 

Among them i read about a songwriter called Bert Berns. I thought i had never heard of him but when i heard some of the songs he has written i have known him all my life! He wrote quite some classic Soul & Pop Songs. So i decided to dedicate this playlist to him. 

 

Enjoy!

@Jazzwhatever you definitely have a great taste of songs for this genre. I grew up on all this type of music and man I never get tired of it. Check out my Motown playlist and let me know your thoughts.

@msalinas408 Hey thanks for the postitive feedback. Could you make another soul playlist? If you type Motown in spotify you get 100s of playlists called motown. Although i really like Motown artists as for a playlist it's not very original to call it Motown. :)

 

I think you can do better. :) Just let me know when you have made a new one.

 

And i checked your old school funk playlist. It got some good choices, but others like michael jackson, david bowie, bill withers don't fit the list. But overall i find it a better list than the motown one. I actually really liked the oh honey track by Delegation but it's definetly no funk. :)  Also try to include 1 or 2 songs of 1 artists on the list, instead of more. 

 

Goodluck out there!
