This man possessed the uncanny ability to inject soul into even the most inanimate lyrics: "the coke's are in the ice box, the popcorn's on the table."

Sam Cooke - Having A Party

It's true that Cooke was at his best when the lyrical substance supported the incomparable quality of his voice ('Bring It On Home To Me'). But there's undoubtedly something to be said for an artist who still succeeds in sinking his teeth into your heart strings even when the subject matter fails to take you beneath the surface.
