Soulful Strut or Am I The Same Girl

Love every version of this song.

Knew it as a kid as Soulful Strut but it wasn't until the '90s with brilliant Swing out Sister Corinne Drewery that I realized there were lyrics first sung by Barbara Acklin in '69, a hit for sure. But the instrumental Soulful Strut of '68 by Young-Holt Unlimited I think may have drowned out Ms. Acklin's song.

9. One of the most perfect songs and best lyrics ever.

Everything here is so clear, you can see it
And everything here is so real, you can feel it
And it's real, so real, so real, so real, so real, so real
Oh, let's dig it.
Can you dig it, baby?

6. Pretty much in the same camp

I first remember this song in its 1990 Swingout Sister incarnation. But there was a local station that was playing the Soulful Strrut version as well. I only learned of the Barbara Acklin version many years later. It is a great tune, with or without lyrics.

7. Yes, The Genealogist!

Some tunes have a timeless quality that strongly resonate and so far can't be done wrong.
