Solomon Burke, R.I.P.


Soul music lost a giant today, as Solomon Burke died at the age of 70 of unknown causes.  The man had many great songs, like “Cry to Me” and a song made famous for its inclusion in The Blues Brothers, “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love.”  My favorite, though, was introduced to me in the pages of High Fidelity, though, as “Got to Get You off of My Mind” is Laura’s favorite song in the novel.
