I’m going to punt it a little this week if it’s alright with you. I’ve been involved with an temporary gig which helps to pay the bills, and as the Outsiders once famously proclaimed, “Time Won’t Let Me.”

So instead of a featured song this week, and I’m going to give you the opportunity to listen to all of the Soul Serenade songs ever (at least all that are available on Spotify, and that’s nearly all of them), and then some. I’ve been compiling this Spotify playlist for quite awhile now, and it features over 100 soul gems. Friends tell me that you can just start the playlist at the beginning of your summer party and it will entertain your guests all night long.

For you Rdio fans, there’s a very similar playlist there.

So without further ado, the Soul Serenade Spotify playlist. Put it on, and turn it up! I’ll be back next week with an all-new column. I’m thinking a little early James Brown. Sound good?
