'Cause everyone needs a little r&b in their lives.

Curtis, based on these song choices. Rewriting the poll:

James Brown: It's a Man's Man's Man's World / The Payback
Ray Charles: Georgia On My Mind/Drown in My Own Tears
Stevie Wonder: I Was Made to Love Her/I Wish
Aretha Franklin: Think/The House That Jack Built
Marvin Gaye: I Heard it Through the Grapevine/Let's Get It On
Sam Cooke: A Change Is Gonna Come / Bring It On Home
The Temptations: I Know I'm Losing You/Ain't Too Proud to Beg
Otis Redding: I've Been Lovin' You Too Long / Try a Little Tenderness
Curtis Mayfield: Move On Up / Freddie's Dead: Cool, just spellcheck it
Smokey Robinson: Tracks Of My Tears / Tears of a Clown
Jackie Wilson: Doggin' Around / Lonely Teardrops
The Isley Brothers: It's Your Thing / Between The Sheets: Cool, but well below the rest of this list.
Jackson 5: I Want You Back / n/a
Prince: When You Were Mine/Little Red Corvette
Little Richard: Good Golly Miss Molly / Keep A-Knockin': Cool. Little Richard was actually my 2nd choice from your options, which he has no business being.

With these new songs I'd probably go Aretha, Sam, Smokey, Curtis and Prince in that order. Little Richard would drop from 2nd to like 12th

I Want You Back/n/a?
:freak:

So many great Jackson 5 songs, but I'd pick Mama's Pearl off the top of my head.

going purely off quality this is way too difficult, so I decided to vote based on my own criteria I made up right now. Voted for the Isleys because the two songs represented are so close in quality despite being so far apart in terms of time and style. How were the Isleys so good for so long?

Otis is the only one where both are among my favorite songs by the artist.

Btw, I didn't include Lonely Teardrops for Jackie because it's not really r&b, it sounds much more like pop. If anyone is wondering why I chose "Give Me Back My Heart", just listen to it and you'll see. It's Jackie at his most soulful, without any question.

I'm sorry but every time I look at your avatar, I picture Eddie Murphy doing that Teddy Pendergrass impression...

My favorite song in this poll is "Can't Get Next To You", but Otis has the better pairing. Great poll.

I love both, but nothing makes me laugh like Raw does. The Bill Cosby impersonation just had me in tears...

The James Brown one was just as funny. :lol:
