I wanted to give everyone a little something different this evening while the sun is going down and a new week is about to begin. Bring It On Home To Me, for those of you who don’t know, is a soul song from the early 1960’s that was written and recorded by singer/songwriter Sam Cooke. There is nothing I enjoy more then some good ol’ soul music, the beautiful gentle notes from the piano, the deep sultry voices. It makes you feel so good, I mean you could honestly be in the worst mood right now and I guarantee that your mood will be boosted by listening to some soul music.
One thing about soul music is that I feel like being in its presence, live is the most affective way to listen to it. I love going to soul and jazz clubs in NYC, I am telling you there is no way in Hell to fake this genre of music, you literally feel the energy coming off the artist on stage onto everyone in the audience, its literally breath taking. I haven’t gotten enough sultry Male vocals lately and this just did the job for me. If you haven’t stepped foot into a soul or jazz club, please do so for an incredible and very real experience.
Spoon does a beautiful job of recreating this track without taking away the energy and the feeling that you get from the original but giving it more of an indie/soul spin that the younger generation can relate to as well as experiencing the original version. His vocal energy is marvelously done without spoiling the original version and this is something you have to appreciate because to capture that same energy is very hard to do. So I really had to give you guys another post this evening with a double dose of love in it with the cover track and the original, so press play get lost in the rest of your Sunday, enjoy!
