Musical Friday and Soul Train

Friday again, and another fairly simply random 10, but I want to add a note of goodbye to Don Cornelius - I don't remember Soul Train as clearly as I remember MIdnight Special, but in the 70s, any TV show with music - lots of music - was like manna... So - start with Marvin Gaye, a long segment chatting with Don and the audience, then singing "Let's Get It On" - yes indeed.

And? let's turn the randomizer over to Genius today, and start with Marvin Gaye....

1. Marvin Gaye - What's Goin' On
2. James Brown - It's a Man's Man's Man's World
3. The Isley Brothers - That Lady
4. Stevie Wonder - He's Misstra Know It All
5. Smokey Robinson and the Miracles - Tears of a Clown
6. The Temptations - Get Ready
7. Sly & The Family Stone - Hot Fun in the Summer Time
8. Prince and the Revolution - Purple Rain
9. Curtis Mayfield - (Don't Worry) If there's a Hell Below We're All Going to Go
10. Meters - Cissy Strut

And more Soul Train - here are the Isley Brothers:

And - though not the song on the genius list - Stevie Wonder...
