Dass es Künstler gibt, die mehr als nur "I Love You" oder "Take My Heart" zum Besten geben, wissen wohl alle. In vielen Texten sind richtige Perlen versteckt, die schon fast literarischen Wert haben. Ich habe mich mal auf die Suche nach Songtexten gemacht und bin auf eine sehr gute Website gestossen. Einige der schönsten Songpassagen habe ich mal rausgepickt, wer Lust hat, findet hier noch mehr:

James Brown, Say It Loud - I'm Black And I'M Proud (Part I)
