My gosh, there's a lot of good soul songs, and glad it's being talked about.(And thanks for mentioning "Keep on Truckin'")

Hard to pick five though, and you picked some good ones. But I do have some others, and hard not to pick just five......

"Bernadette"- Four Tops

"Tears of a Clown", "Love Machine"- Miracles

"Ain't too Proud to Beg"- Temptations

"Chain of Fools"- Aretha Franklin

"You're Still a Young Man"- Tower of Power

"She's Lookin' Good"- Rodger Collins

"Show Me"- Joe Tex

"It Only Takes a Minute"- Tavares

"What'd I Say"- Ray Charles

"Do the Funky Chicken"- Rufus Thomas

"Build Me Up Buttercup", "Baby Now That I Found You"- Foundations(OK, white English guys---but they've got SOUL in their sound)

"25 Miles"- Edwin Starr

And yes, lot's of JB...."Papa's Got a Brand New Bag"........but I must admit that(despite that some people on this board expressed their dislike for it)I like "Hot Pants"!
