"Let's Stay Together" by Al Green is my all-time number one favorite song. But because I already nominated it once before, I reasonably decided not to vote on it and give other songs a chance. I just wanted everyone to know that a little piece of my soul died making that decision. I love that song!

1. Smooth Operator - Sade One of the smoothest groups in music and one of their smoothest hits

2. Unforgettable - Nat King Cole It was said he was "The best friend a song ever had" ... was that accurate? You betcha!

3. Rotten Peaches - Elton John One of Taupin's most visceral lyric as we can feel and see a hot, sweaty convict working on a chain gang along a distasteful Georgia road. From the album "Madman Across The Water"

4. Them Changes - Buddy Miles One of the best from The Electric Flag

5. Son Of A Preacher Man - Dusty Springfield I had the opportunity to see her sing this live. There will never be voice as dynamic, flexible and controlled coming from a more beautiful face than this, ever again. She was just amazing!

6. Put A Little Love In Your Heart - Jackie DeShannon What great lyrics that simply put into context what peace and a lack of greed require. "I hope when you decide/Kindness will be your guide."

7. Ode To Billy Joe - Bobby Gentry The third of these solo female singers all with the ability to paint with their voices. This song is probably the most visual of the three.

8. Addicted To Love - Robert Palmer Class, class, class. RIP, Robert.

9. Gloria - Them Hello, Van. The world will never be the same.

10. How Much I Feel - Ambrosia One of the best blue-eyed soul groups of the 70's and 80's.

Unforgettable - Nat King Cole. It was said he was "The best friend a song ever had" ...

Whoever said that knew what he was talking about.

Steel, thanks for the trivia against each vote. Helps us know and want to hear those we've never heard before. Cheers! :thumbup:

1. Like a Rock. As I mentioned this song means a lot to me.

2. I Heard It Through The Grapevine. A soul legend whose life was cut way too short.

3. Love The One Your With. A great voice, Stephen Stills, combined with a little Carribean beat.

4. Put A Little Love In Your Heart. A great message. Featured in the film "Scrooged" with Bill Muarry.

5. To Sir With Love. Featured from the film with same name. LuLu, a little gal with a great big voice.

6. Let's Stay Together. A soul classic by the now minister of the gospel Al Stewart.

7. All Summer Long. The one and only ambassadors of summer, The Beach Boys.

8. Grazing In The Grass.

9. Son Of a Preacher Man Another little lady of Rock that had a powerfull voice.

10. Riders on The Storm. Jim Morrison. I think one of the great male vocalist of rock. He had that deep velvet like reverb in his vocals.
