    An average Soul singer is better than a great Pop Singer.

    The King/Queen of Pop is like crowning the King/Queen of Cleveland.

    OBTW. Sam Cooke was the King of Soul

    James Brown was one bad mofo! :lalala:

    You can't tell me, I seen him on some live show when he was 60 and still kickin' ass!

    Blown away! He was the shit!

    They called him the "Godfather of Soul"

    Wow! amazing names posted above! thank you everybody!:clap2:

    in my humble opinion....pop, soul or whatever it is.....
