Soul music is all about punch-you-in-the-gut emotion, which is why it never really goes out of fashion. From Stax and Motown to Northern Soul and neo-soul, it's a timeless genre that's gripped us for decades.
In compiling our list of the greatest ever soul songs, we’ve sought the advice of Soul City – the weekly night at Camden's Jazz Café. DJs from their impressive opening line-up have shared their selections, so look out for top-notch recommendations from Norman Jay MBE, The Invisible, DJ Yoda, Throwing Shade and more. Happy listening, soul mates!
