Sam, just 'cause.

I mean, if you found this picture, would you not do a Sam Cooke post?


Range is not relevant.
It was his power to deliver — it was about his phrasing, the totality of his singing.

- Van Morrison

Sam Cooke - "Bring It On Home To Me"


I don't care for jewelry, or even so much for money, but Sam will lure you back home with both if the luring is done via his singing voice.

And if you know who sangs background on this epic dress-remover of a song, your musical knowledge has impressed me so intensely that you're the winner of a magical prize from me that's too filthy to describe on public Internets.
Sorry, Mom.

Wow, great quote. I thought I had heard most quotes by other artists, but this was a new one on me.

I am 1,000% sure that's Lou Rawls. His voice is almost as unmistakable as Cooke's.
