Randomly these two tunes pop up on my iPod one after the other on my way home from work yesterday... I never realised that they are actually quite similar, although still different... Aside from being classic songs, another thing they have in common is that they they are both socially conscious...

Marvin Gaye's 'Whats Goin On' deals with issues like police brutally and the Vietnam War, whilst 'Soulsville' deals with racism, welfare, lack of job opportunities and drugs etc

Post some of your other favourite 'socially conscious' soul records...

    I just found out about Soulsville recently. Marvin was conscious as 🤬 though. Inner City Blues is a favorite of mine

    Crazy that we may of never heard Marvin singing 'What Going On' as Berry Gordy didnt want Marvin singing a 'protest song'...
