James Brown - Songs


ABOUT

James Brown

Soul legend James Brown (May 3, 1933 - December 25, 2006) was a singer, songwriter, and performing artist whose career spanned many decades. He has been dubbed "The Godfather of Soul," "Soul Brother Number One," "The Hardest Working Man In Show Business," and "Mr. Dynamite."

In 1956, Brown debuted on the R&B charts with "Please, Please, Please" and thereafter had a very long string of hits on both the Pop/Rock and R&B charts that continued through the late 1990s. His best known songs include "I Got You (I Feel Good)" (1965), "Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud" (1968), "Get On The Good Foot - Part 1" (1972), and "The Payback - Part 1" (1974). His 1986 hit, "Living In America," was part of the soundtrack for "Rocky IV."

A dynamic performer and prolific songwriter, James Brown has, over the years, been a major shaping force of many genres that include soul, gospel, R&B, funk, disco, rap, and hip-hop. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986 and he received a lifetime achievement Grammy Award in 1992.
