(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher – Jackie Wilson

This song keeps lifting me higher and higher, all day, every day.

Jackie Wilson, in his hey day around the 50’s, was known as “Mr Excitement”, and this song is a perfect example of this. Much loved in the entertainment industry, Jackie Wilson was not only seen as a top musician, he was the whole package. He was a master entertainer. Plus look at this hair. Well coiffed, slicked back. The man can do no wrong!

This song came out in 1967, and frankly it feels as fresh as it dead the day it came out. I mean, I say that, but I have no idea how fresh it felt then as I was -26 years old, but I imagine it feels equally fresh. The point is, this song is a classic. I still jam out to this at least three times a week, and this song manages to encompass my sleep, work, mellow and party playlists. That’s a lot of air time! It’s just his voice. There’s so much charisma in what he’s saying, and the beat is so clean cut that you can’t help but want to party on down. Anyway, enough rambling from me, go jam to some Jackie.
