2022-03-28 (Don’t Funk With My Soul Edition Vol. 3)

Do. Not. Funk. With. My. Fuckin’. Soul! Emo-muthafuckin’-clew to the 3rd volume of the Don’t Funk With My Soul Edition of Monday Morning Aural fuckin’ Sex! Should be pretty clear what we’ve got in store for us this week. This is almost all entirely new stuff; most of it is stuff I found only just last week. Some of the tracks are ones I’ve known about for many years, but that haven’t yet made any appearance on this podcast, and it’s about fuckin’ time. That goes for the Dr. John tracks, the Bill Withers track, and definitely the Cody Chesnutt tracks.


To be perfectly frank, I’m not enormously conversant on the funk and/or soul genres, but I definitely appreciate the fuck out of a lot of it. I’ve certainly listened to plenty of it over the years that I’ve been doing rideshare work, considering that stuff was the most often complimented music I ever played. That being said, I don’t have a whole lot to say about these tracks individually. This is just me continuing to expand my (and your) knowledge of these awesome genres. Although, if I’m 100% with y’all, my heart wasn’t particularly into any type of podcast this week due to the extreme emotional exhaustion I’m currently enduring after what I did last week, and the week before. Also, the reason I posted a Flashback edition last week is ‘cause for some reason, the tracks were interrupted during recording, and by the time I noticed it, it was already like 7:30 AM, sooo… Yeah, needed sleep.


I will note, however, that apparently tens of millions of people knew about Musiq Soulchild’s track called Just Friends (Sunny) long before I did, ‘cause I literally just discovered it last week. I should also give fair warning here that the latter portion of this edition gets pretty heavy, but yeah, kind of a strange and mildly upsetting occurrence finding that track considering what I just spent most of my nights doing over the past two weeks (and those of you who follow my socials ought to know what I’m talking about here), but y’all might be surprised how often strange and mildly upsetting things happen to me in that regard. I suppose one could make the argument that because she’s so prominent in my mind that I’m bound to notice shit like that more often. Fair enough, I suppose, but a lot of it still strikes me as pretty out of the blue.


I imagine no small number of people out there would interpret those happenings as some sort of communication. I guess I’m somewhat open to that. I just know it would be much easier to believe if there was something unequivocally pertinent being communicated beyond something as simple as, “hey there.” Maybe that’s all it can ever be, maybe that’s all it ever needs to be. I don’t know, I’m fuckin’ rambling at this point. Whaddya say we get to the yojnefyin’ already?!
