Music: Marlena Shaw – California Soul

For those of you unaware, there’s a new Dockers commercial out, featuring beautiful views of San Francisco and (mostly white) people enjoying themselves.  The commercial also features a great song I had never heard before, which is actually a few decades old but still kicks your ass like yesterday’s news.  That song is California Soul, sung to perfection by Marlena Shaw.  Not surprisingly, Shaw was part of the incredible roster held by Chess Records in the late 60’s.

I highly highly recommend you go check it out, and if you don’t believe me then just check out the commercial and see for yourself:
