    You can't talk about Sam Cooke unless Change is gonna come is included.
    It was a truly inspiring song that took a lot of guts to do in 1963.
    In particular, I like where he included what blacks were doing to blacks as apart of civil rights.

    The first time I heard Sam Cooke was as a kid in Memphis. My Mom listened to the radio in the car. She just plain swooned.

    His voice was so damn pure.
