I have been rolling in the retro lately, but not as far back as I usually go. This time, I have been going back to the 1960s with James Brown. Today’s song is “It’s A Man’s World” and honey don’t I know it.
I am not usually a godfather of soul fan, but this version is especially good. And even though it is long, hang in there and keep it on in the background as you get back to your excel files at work.
The last time I had heard this song was when Christina Aguilera over sang it to death. She looked amazing, and she can usually sing, but this is one of those soulful songs that more is not better. You have to FEEL it on some level, even if your feeling is that this is just a pile of horse sh*t. She just tried too damn hard to make it “amazing” when she should have just let the song be the song.
