One for The Boss

I'm always amazed at just how much energy James Brown could generate through his vocals. You can't help but move your body. This song in particular always gets me going. Listen for the very first vocal. It's electrifying! It's as if the brass provides the introduction and then, right from the word go, on the down beat, he makes his entrance and gets his message out, like a bolt of lightning direct to your soul bone:

"RAISE UP! Get yourself together and drive that funky soul!!!!"

Put on your dancing shoes.
