"Bustin' Loose" -- Chuck Brown & The Soul Searchers (The Best of Chuck Brown)
Soul Selector says: "This was my Q&D Presidential Inauguration mix, in honor of Barack H. Obama, the 44th President of the United States. I'm waiting for Chuck Brown to perform a go-go version of 'Hail to the Chief.'"

"Getcho Soul Together, Pt. 1" -- Breakestra -- (Stop & Listen 5)
"Home Is Where the Hatred Is" -- Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson -- (It's Your World)
Soul Selector says: "That Breakestra joint is straight ridiculous, selected by Kenny Dope for his contribution to a Masters at Work compilation on BBE. Kenny (along with Keb Darge, Pete Rock, and a host of other cats) have been laying out heavy duty funk compilations for several years now, and "Getcho Soul Together" is one of Kenny's tastiest selections. Kenny also sampled a break from this live version of Gil Scott's 'Home Is Where The Hatred Is' for a mid-1990s Masters at Work track."

"I Can't Help It" -- Michael Jackson (Off the Wall)
Soul Selector says: "Recently, I read where DJ Spinna claimed in an interview that 'I Can't Help It' is his favorite Stevie Wonder composition. Unfortunately, I did not get to attend Spinna & Bobbito's Wonder-full when it was performed in DC on Martin Luther King's birthday, so I had to drop this one in tribute."

"Born Again" -- V (The Revelation Is Now Televised)
"Slowly Surely -- Jill Scott (Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds, Vol. 1)

"Boogie On Reggae Woman" -- Stevie Wonder (Fulfillingness' First Finale)
