Top 10 “BREAKING” Southern Soul Singles Preview
TOP 10 February 2020
1. “Love Train”—-Avail Hollywood
The only reservation I have about this crowd-pleasing, superbly-sung, mid-tempo anthem is that it would have been better named “Black Locomotive,” the title of Avail’s intoxicating new CD.
2. “Da Fire”—–Dee Dee Simon
The multi-talented Bay area diva strikes gold with an Isley-inspired tune instructing her enamored to “Put your wood in my fire/ ‘Cause, baby, my flame is running low.”
3. “Funky Forty”——Arthur Young
Bargain-priced sexual favors in the shadowy corners of the chitlin’ circuit make for a funny and memorable tune that has already garnered a quarter-million YouTube views.
4. “Funky Forty Reply”—–Rosalyn Candy
And, like Pokey’s “My Sidepiece,” “Funky Forty” has its very own “Funky Forty Reply,” courtesy of Rosalyn Candy. “You can keep your little funky forty/I need more than that!”
5. “That’s Life”—–T.K. Soul
T.K. flashes all of the serious vocal firepower at his command on this uncompromising and passionate self-examination of himself and his significant other.
6. “Mr. VIP”—-Highway Heavy featuring Coldrank
Coldrank takes his most front-and-center musical role to date, spinning a tale of artistic assertion.
7. “Facebook”—–Ricky White
Glory to Ricky! Now, once again, you can hear his incredible vocal prowess without the distraction of those faux-horn riffs he’s been infatuated with for years.
8. “That Booty”—–Solomon Thompson featuring Lebrado
Solomon and Lebrado team up on a sparkling ode to a mesmerizing club dancer.
9. “Country Folks Party”—-Narvel Echols
Another Echols family member (after L.J. and Krishaunda) makes his finest musical bid to date with a club song appropriating the same K.C. & The Sunshine Band horn lick Floyd Hamberlin used in Nellie “Tiger” Travis’s “Back It Up”.
10. “Lookin’ Good”—–King South featuring Jeter Jones
Jeter Jones is a one-man, talent-finding machine, and he does it again with King South.
