Man...I got the same reaction as you. I didn't know a white guy sang that. But wait...look at his hair. Yup, I think he's got to be mixed with a little sumthin ;) LOL

HAHA!

For some reason I always thought Aaron Neville sang this song.

I was hanging with my sister yesterday and this came on the radio and she started talking about Simply Red's hair. I was like "a white dude sang this?" She was like, "hell yeah!"

There are a lot of white dudes that are real soulful with it and I intend to oust as many of them from obscurity as I can in the coming weeks.

Hey Bro.,
Lol!! I actually was surprised too. I always thought it was Al Green. I don't know why I never looked into it.
Oh Boy!!

MK,

The pic is of Steve Biko. Denzel made a movie about him, but I would suggest reading one of his books if you want to find out more about him. "I Write What I Like" is one of my favorites.

But yeah, we were all bamboozled on this one. The dude can blow. And he rips it towards the end of the song!
