Old School Friday: Philly Soul

TGIOSF! This week's theme is Philly Soul. I'm not an expert on Philly Soul, so I had to call my old school ass uncle on this one.

He was like, "Babygurl" (he ran it all together just like that... "Babygurl, now you know ya Uncle Ronnie know 'bout some music gal. You don't know nuttin' 'bout no Philly Soul so lemme tell ya a lil' some'n some'n."

So shouts out to my old ass uncle *snicker* and here are my picks for Philly Soul:

Eddie Holman: Lonely Girl

Lou Rawls: See You When I Get There

Hall & Oats: Private Eye

(I managed not to squeeze a little Prince into this week's selection. Aren't y'all proud of me? LOL)
