your jam for the weekend is... rainy-day soul

12 July 2013

i've been enjoying this past week's strange weather patterns - there has been a storm nearly every night,  and I absolutely love a quiet night at home listening to the rain. my soundtrack of choice? generally: sam cooke. i think he'll get a post of his own one of these days, because his greatest hits album was one of the best album purchases i've made all year. for the time being, I thought I'd dream up a soundtrack for a weekend of watching the storm clouds roll in - some sultry but sweet soul music. 

click here to listen to the entire playlist (without having to press play on each video)! 

without further ado, here are ten golden soul tracks to get ya in the mood for a mellow weekend... 

you send me - sam cooke

sitting on the dock of the bay - otis redding

under the boardwalk - the drifters

in the midnight hour - wilson pickett

everyday people - sly and the family stone

uptight - stevie wonder

just one look - doris troy

down on the corner - creedence clearwater revival

wishin' hopin' dreamin' - dusty springfield

piece of my heart - janis joplin
