Sam Cooke, or "that gospel singer who has my name too" - A Change Is Gonna Come

On NPR's list of 500 most important songs ever ever. Posthumous release, widely regarded as his best composition ever. It became associated with the civil rights movement, but Cooke wasn't around to see his pivotal work in action -- he'd been shot dead, naked, in the hallway of a hotel, while chasing a prostitute that had stolen his clothes and money.


you sure 'composition' is the word you're looking for?

Yes! Or Snow Patrol. He doesn't like them either.

I think Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars is the most posted playlist song.

Smile

NOT what I was getting at

(anyway, sure they can but most singers just don't. Even the singer/songwriter types tend to get their producers to arrange the stuff. Especially when they're huge orchestrations like this. Not many people have the skills to arrange stuff for a whole orchestra AND a great voice. )

My comment though was more to the effect that most soul is very melody oriented, so basically there's just a tune and some backing, with very little interaction between the two. Or rather, the backing just supplies a solid body of music to the singer, a background, a canvas for the singer to paint on, while the singer doesn't have to do anything to support the backing. (this is a very oversimplified description, often the melody pulls the song into different keys or sections that wouldn't sound natural without the singer leading the way)

The word 'composition' to me suggests something else, not something better, just something else. To me it's like you're calling a portait a landscape because it has hills in the background

But hey I looked it up and as far as I can see everybody else agrees with you that he was indeed a composer, which 'd make his songs 'compositions' I guess. Smile

my apologies,

On top of that the sound of his records seems to have been very original at the time and hugely influencial. So that settles the 'is it a composition' question then.
Who's composition exactly is not very easy to find out from the sources on the net but he is often listed as a producer or even a composer, and lots of sources talk about his unique sound...
