Got Soul?

It's holiday time, which for most of us means a lot of time in the kitchen. Might I suggest what might be the best classic soul play list of all time? No joke, my personal mix cd was a big hit at work back in the day. It was discovered by a manager in the office, and she asked if she could copy it. She then made more copies and gave them to some of our co-workers who would randomly come up to inform me that they'd gotten a copy and that I was chocked full of soul. It's just that awesome. Guaranteed to have you dancing while you dice, and singing while you stir. To be played in this order (for reals, it's an important part):

"Superstitious"- Stevie Wonder
"Papa Was a Rolling Stone"- The Temptations
"Here I Am (Come and Take Me)"- Al Green
"I Heard It Through the Grapevine"- Gladys Knight and The Pips
"Respect Yourself"- The Staple Singers
"Mother, Mother"- Marvin Gaye
"Let's Stay Together"- Al Green
"Superfly"- Curtis Mayfield
"Try a Little Tenderness"- Otis Redding
"Mercy, Mercy Me"- Marvin Gaye
"Midnight Train to Georgia"- Gladys Knight and The Pips
"I'll Take You There"- The Staple Singers
"Sittin' On The Dock of The Bay"- Otis Redding

Feel free to omit the last song if you feel it's a bit predictable. I feel that way sometimes, but it is a good song so it doesn't hurt the groove of the playlist at all.

I love how they came to tell you you were 'chocked full of soul'. Hehe. Love the blog, I'm a big Woody allen and Neil Young fan, too. And love your front room! Need your sanding and painting patience for some of my projects!
