Baby, I've given you everything I've had to give and now I'm gonna live.
I was holding on to this one for a rainy day, or until a moment in time that felt appropriate. Well that moment is upon us friends! In honor of Dean Parrish's upcoming Brooklyn performance at Southpaw I'm posting one of the most tremendous Northern Soul anthems I've ever heard: "I'm On My Way" by the one and only Mr. Parrish.
This is one of those soul songs that is so grandiose that it literally takes ten or fifteen listens to even begin to comprehend how massive of a song it really is. Another song, for example, is Frank Wilson's "Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)." These kinds of songs to me represent the perfection of class and style, they recall a time when being a performer meant actually possessing a respectable talent.
"I'm On My Way" is too impressive to properly describe with words so it's best to just listen, on repeat, until you find yourself shouting the words at the top of your lungs. I hope you enjoy this one because it's definitely one of my favorites. Also, check out the flyer I'm posting at the bottom of the post for Dean Parrish's upcoming show and if you live in New York definitely come out.
