While Southern Soul is thought to be a sub-genre of The Blues, its tempo is a bit more upbeat, often lending to potential for line dances.  The music is most enjoyed in "juke-joint" style atmospheres, but it's making its way into more mainstream clubs and bars in the South.

Similar to country music, Southern Soul often tells stories.  Some are about cheating, others about current loves and loves lost.  Then there are songs that aren't about love at all, but more so lust!

One of these is Vick Allen's "I Wanna Do You."

 

Well, one thing's for certain.  If someone dedicates this song to you, there's no question about his or her intent with you.

Be sure to listen to WTUG every Saturday night beginning at 6pm for the Southern Soul Mix with a Twyst where you can hear music like this and more.
