"Hold On, I'm Coming"

Sam & Dave, if remembered at all these days, are probably best known for singing the original "Soul Man", long before it was covered by the Blues Brothers. But they weren't one-hit wonders, their greatest hits disc is fantastic high-energy music from beginning to end.

This Saturday's "dash of happy" is "Hold On, I'm Coming", my favorite Sam & Dave song. I remember hearing it for the first time at a college party and grabbing my friend and demanding to know the name of the song and who sang it.

I couldn't possibly hear that opening horn riff and not start moving.  And the double entendres available from the lyrics just make it that much more fun.

Happy Saturday!


  1. this was fun to listen to. you're right, i start moving from the very beginning of the song. ;-)

  2. I remember singing I'm a soul man, in my still girly high voice... Then the hormones kicked in..

  3. :-)

    This made me move...and very happy.
