  2. Sam Cooke
  3. Otis Redding 
  4. Al Green 
  5. Teddy Pendergrass
  6. Isaac Hayes
  7. Ben E King
  8. Curtis Mayfield

I made you kids a little mixtape filled with few of my favourite oldies that will no doubt have the women of your dreams melting. Before you hit the download button and due to legalities I had to put a little disclaimer. 
Warning:LYFSTYL cannot be held responsible for any babies that were made while listening to these musicians in the company of women.
Download at your own risk!!

Thanks for the download! Question: It’s a totally awesome list. Obviously, this isn’t my personal list. Should this be called, “Top Ten favourite MALE soul artists,” instead?
