I'm probably going to get ten kinds of shit for saying this, but if you've ever dated a woman with even a passing interest in soul music, chances are they had some Al Green. And, even if they had all of his albums, they had got that greatest hits LP. You know the one I'm talking about, the one where he's shirtless. You ladies, we're on to you.
Seriously though, what's not to like? He's Mr. Nice Guy, the kind of person we all should be. The difference is we can't all be as smooth doing it. I ran into the YouTube video of a Soul Train appearance totally by accident. What the hell right? I expected to like it. I didn't expect to be sucked in, blown away, and all those other phrases I overuse. I give up. I'll never be as smooth doing anything.
