So Good Soul Revue playlist for December 4, 2012
The above video was a request that I couldn’t get to, I’m assuming from a Community fan. Hopefully enjoying it unironically, but who can say.
The spotlight this week was on soul covers of Beatles tunes, a topic that popped into my head thanks to the great new remaster of the Grey Album, but the actual show started on a very mellow note — the Via Lactea Caboose ended with Michael Bolton, so I decided to keep the lite jamz going with Fantastic Four’s thoroughly wonderful “Give Me All the Love You Got.” There’s some solid soul gems in there, but I’m regretting not throwing in a bit of Das Racist to commemorate their breakup. So it goes.
Next week, Freak Motif in the studio and plenty more good tunes.
