As with the Motown entry, not much to say here, just a staggering amount of mind blowing music as R&B continues it's evolution. The creativity of the form and it's ceaseless forward progress are beyond impressive. I'm not sure I've ever heard "Jungle Boogie" by Kool and the Gang and been not shakin' to the core by how amazing that song is. Pure fun.
...And please don't be offended when we give you the "Soul Finger"!
