I'll give you jewelry, money too

154. Sam Cooke - "Bring It On Home To Me" (RCA Victor, 1962)

Sam Cooke's voice is magical. The lyrics to this song are good and interesting, but without that voice to imbue them with that combination of sadness, desperation, and hope that there's a chance she might actually come back this is just another good soul song, not one of the greatest. The fact that the smooth cannon of a voice that is Lou Rawls sings backup on this doesn't help.
