I'll leave you with two final extras. First, a song that was first recorded by this San Francisco-based band in 1973. It was re-recorded as the title track of their 1976 album. It peaked at #2 on the Hot 100 and crossed over to the soul chart, peaking at #20. It was later covered by Seal for the Space Jam soundtrack.
Fly Like An Eagle - The Steve Miller Band
Next, a song that features music from one of the biggest movies of all time. This medley topped the Hot 100 and peaked at #8 soul.

5. I Wish - Stevie Wonder: LMAO not gonecountry jinxing this song wishing it would show up at #1 and then it showing up right after their post. Love this song from Stevie. It's such a fun, classic and great jam! Oooh ahh this was my #3. But really love this and it's up there as amongst one of my favorite songs from Stevie. Not surprised that this was the 5th lowest SD as I expect Stevie's songs not to be polarizing.
4. Got To Give It Up - Marvin Gaye: Really like this song a lot but darn I kinda wish this showed up at 5th so that I could have had my Top 4 making the actual Top 4. Darn so close. But this is a great and funky song, and it's really fun.
3. Sir Duke - Stevie Wonder: Wow I'm kinda surprised neither of Stevie's songs managed to make it to the Top 2. I do love "Sir Duke" and this is another really fun, funky classic song from Stevie, as it is my #4. I do prefer "I Wish" but love them both and happy to see them both rank highly. But wow it's impressive this has 5 #1s and then only two Bottom 10 ranks of #13 rankings but then this still couldn't win or make it to 2nd.
Wow my Top 2 songs made it to the Top 2 here. Fantastic!
2. Don't Leave Me This Way - Thelma Houston: Niceee I'm really happy to see my #2 come in at #2 and yesss a perfect ranking! This is such a classic, fun song from Thelma. Wow the rankings for this is really impressive with 3 #1s, 12 Top 3s, 17 Top 5s and 21 Top 8 rankings! Not surprised seeing this getting the 3rd lowest SD.
1. Best Of My Love - The Emotions: Yayy I'm happy that I got another perfect ranking with my #1 here! And nicee at having a perfect Top 2! Congrats to ccarter1023 there too. But yesss, this is a really fun, classic and enjoyable song that always makes me happy whenever I hear it. It's just so fun, catchy and infectious! Wow these stats for this song are INSANE! :omg: 10 #1s? That's unheard of. As well as 15 Top 3s and 21 Top 5 rankings - crazy seeing 21 out of 23 rankings in the Top 5 for this, but it's totally deserved!
Wow I am just stunned and so happy with how well I did. I wasn't even sure if I was going to participate this round as I didn't know more than half of the songs, but I am glad I did as most/all of my favorites did really well.
Thank you for hosting this game and doing such a wonderful job with it, Soulsista! I look forward to the next round.

"Sir Duke" is legitimately in my top...5? favorite songs all-time by anyone, so seeing it that close to the top but not quite getting there does sting a little. Though, nobody but I can say the whole top 4 was in one of their personal rankdowns, so
