Soul Music Dicoveries

Great way to start of this week is my 5 Soul Music Discoveries. Five songs, of which I didn’t know the existence before or that simply deserve to be reheard. Hope you enjoy.


Lois’ Love Theme (Loving You Is On My Mind) -  Solomon Burke and Jerry Styner (Hammer, 1972). Found this song on Blaxploitation Pride. It’s a beautiful love song from the film Hammer. The soundtrack was never officially released.
True Soul Pt. 1 - Albert Smith (True Soul Pt. 1 / True Soul Pt. 2, 197?). Funky guitar. Thanks Funk for the People!
You Hit The Nail On The Head - Arthur Adams (It’s Private Tonight, 1973). Funky track by blues guitarist Arthur Adams.

Thank you so much to everyone who follows me
I’m not sure why you do, but you do, and it means so much that I can share my interests and my personal life with you and receive questions and support and love and uuuuuugh I love you all so much, all 500 of you wowowowowowowowoooooow,,,, ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

we were taking a healthy break from our classes because our brains weren’t working for the moment. we lounged against your car and i said: okay, so young love.

you laughed and stared at the sky and said “well aren’t teens just emotionless robots who whine all day”

and i said; well, i try to whine all day but when would i do my homework

you got real quiet just then and cracked your knuckles and kept watching the clouds and you said “one time i was in an elevator that dropped two stories and while we were all fine that was the moment i realized i would never get her out of me because for all of those seconds where i thought i was dying all i could think was that i’d never have another chance to see her smile and truth be told i think young love is crashing through to the basement and sometimes thinking that maybe you should apply the brakes but knowing - i mean knowing - you’d rather feel this alive than keep being safe.”
