Three musical interludes to start the weekend on the good foot: Soul/funk edition

Summary:
I’ve once again been remiss in sharing what I’m listening to, but here are three jams that will make you smile. The second two will also make you get up and dance, whether you want to or not. First, I loved this carpool karaoke with Stevie Wonder. Even when he’s screwing around, his genius can’t help but flow out. And it’s a reminder of the so many masterpieces he’s penned! Second, I was walking by a store the other day and they were blaring this great, old Curtis Mayfield hit–put me in a great mode for the rest of the day, if not the week. What a voice! Finally, if this doesn’t immediately make you stand up and shake that thang, head to the ER, cuz you probably dead!
