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.
