Hans The Soul Man

I've always liked Soul a great deal, but have been on a big kick lately. Im sure Maniac! will try to exact his authority over this thread, but here goes.
1Otis Redding
Sittin on the Dock of the Bay

Dude wrote this like 3 weeks before he died. A voice on loan from God.
2Sly & The Family Stone
Every Day People

OOOOOOOOOOH SHASHA
3The Temptations
Aint Too Proud to Beg

Sweet Darlin
4Procol Harum
A Whiter Shade of Pale

If you haven't heard this, its fucking brilliant.
5Ray Charles
What'd I Say

Tell Your Ma. Tell Your Pa. GONNA TAKE YA BACK TO ARKANSAS
6The Commodores
Nightshift

Actually released in the 80's. Absolutely gorgeous tribute to Marvin Gaye.
7Ben E. King
Stand By Me

If this song doesn't move you, you have no fucking soul
8Bill Withers
Aint No Sunshine

Shit is depressing but awesome
9Etta James
At Last

She might be as good a singer as Aretha was.
10The Isley Brothers
Shout

NOW WAITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT A MINUTE. Best party song ever probably.
11Marvin Gaye
Mercy Mercy Me

RIP Marvin
12Midnight Train to Georgia
Gladys Knight & The Pips

Its the PIPS, not the PIMPS
13The Contours
Do You Love Me?

I CAN FUCKING MASH POTATO
14Fats Domino
Aint That a Shame

Should be higher, forgot about him when I was writing down the list.
15Al Green
Tired of Being Alone

Get his greatest hits now
16The Ronettes
Be My Baby

Yeah its girly and kind of cheesy, but the wall of sound thing by Phil Spector makes this song fucking infectious.
17James Brown
Its a Mans Mans Mans World

God damn right it is.
18The Four Tops
I Can't Help Myself

SUGAR PIE HONEY BUNCH
19Jackie Wilson
Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher

This song is a fucking soul clinic
20Sam & Dave
Soul Man

Im a fucking SOULLLLLLLLLLLLLL MAN
21Aretha Franklin
Think

YOU BETTER THINK, THINK!
22Ray Charles
Lets Go Get Stoned

Not one of his well known ones but one of his better ones
23JJ Jackson
But Its Alright

ALRIGHT GIRL
24Stevie Wonder
I Believe When I Fall in Love (It Will Be Forever)

brilliant song, plays during the closing credits of "high Fidelity"
25The Shirelles
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow

See 16
26Otis Redding
Try a Little Tenderness

Fucking women get weary
27Diana Ross & The Supremes
Stop! In the Name of Love

See 25 and 16
28James Brown
Papa Don't Take No Mess

Gotta love the Godfather
29Bill Withers

One of the best singing performances forever ever
30Marvin Gaye
Lets Get It On

Yeah its a cliche but a cliche for a reason
31What's Going On

See 30
32Sly & The Family Stone
Family Affair

They bridge the line between funk and soul but it still counts
33The Five Stairsteps
Oooh Child

Things are gonna get easier
34Ray Charles
You Don't Know Me

By now, if you don't have Ray Charles albums you're an idiot
35Smokey Robinson & The Miracles
The Tracks of My Tears

Smokey pretty much WAS Motown
36Sam & Dave
Hold On, I'm Coming

This is in like 100 movie montages
37Otis Redding
These Arms of Mine

This will get you laid
38Al Green
Lets Stay Together

Another cliche that needs to be on any soul list
39The Temptations
The Way You Do The Things You Do
