Song of the day: Sam & Dave- Soul Man

In 1967, Isaac Hayes and David Porter wrote the song Soul Man. The song was inspired by the African American Civil Rights Movement, which caused a lot of commotion in the sixties. After a riot in Detroit, the buildings that were not destroyed were marked with the word soul. Hayes and Porter thought of a song in which the struggle to overcome the present situation was the main theme. Sam & Dave recorded it on the Stax label and got a number 2 hit in the US. As usual, Booker T & The MG’s played the music. Enjoy
