It’s a Man’s World – James Brown

Mr. James Brown is truly blessed with a great set of pipes. His voice makes people fall in love. I think you could take out all the instrumentals in this song and the vocals would carry on. I love his high notes to punctuate.

The guitar and drums definitely round it out though. I actually really dig the very simple drumming. It’s almost just there to keep time.

I love how this song is mostly slow and builds to the occasional emotional burst. Such a classic.

P.S. James Brown must sweat 100 gallons of sweat while singing this song. Whew!
