Hello St. Olaf! So, while we all know how much you enjoy our weekly blog posts, we have something very new and exciting for you: WEEKLY PLAYLISTS! For every week of this semester, a lovely member of our committee will be curating a playlist that drops EVERY FRIDAY. Brought to you just in time for the weekend!

This week’s playlist is curated by our very own Pete Sheehy! Keep reading to find out what Pete has to say about his playlist and, of course, to check out his playlist titled Pete’s Soul Selects!

Hello St. Olaf,

Let me start by saying that, for me, no other genre of music can crystalize simple human emotion as well as soul. For this playlist, I wanted to dig up some of the more deep dusty classic soul of the late 60s and early 70s, as well as as build a transition from how the the end of the year makes me feel, to how the summer will feel. from the heartwrenchingly sad and lonely strings and organ of northern soul, to the epic sounds of midwestern big brass soul, to the simple vocal harmonies and stripped down accompaniment of southern one off 7 inch soul singles. Soul has something for everybody. I hope you find something you like in my short Soul Selects playlist.
