Song of The Day!

Here's a R&B classic from the legendary soul singer, Al Green. "Let's Stay Together" is one of Al Green's most notable singles. This love song was #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and R&B charts back in 1971 from the album with the same name and is still thriving today.

"Let's Stay Together" is probably one of the most sampled and covered songs in the history of R&B. It's been covered by Roberta Flack, Margie Joseph, Tina Turner, Boyz II Men, Donny Osmond, Michael Bolton, Issac Hayes, Robin Thicke and several others. It has also been featured in numerous commercials, TV shows, and movies. It has also been named one of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time by Rolling Stones.

From the first chords of this song, to the last adlibs, you can't help but tap your foot, dance or sing along. I wonder if he knew how big of a hit he was actually recording when he was in the studio back in the 70s. I love good music.
