Song of the week (sorry I missed last week)

"Jackie Wilson Said" by Van Morrison

I am astounded every time I see a picture or live performance from Van Morrison. HE'S WHITE! He sings with such soul and just sounds black to me. Kind of the way Green Day always sounded British.

When we were kids, my dad had this mix tape he would always play in the car. It featured a bunch of James Brown, some Cheech and Chong tracks, and then the songs my brother and I chose as our "favorites" when we were probably 6 and 3 respectively.

He chose "Highway Star" by Deep Purple. I chose "Domino" by Van Morrison.

Ever since, I've always been a sucker for songs with a ton of brass in them.
