Classic Soul: Isaac Hayes' "Walk On By"




Singer. Songwriter. Composer. Producer. Actor. Icon. These are some of the words that come to mind when I think about the late, great Isaac Hayes. For nearly a half-century, he provided monumental melodies to the world, many of which helped evolve the soul and funk genres.

"Walk on By" from Hayes' Hot Buttered Soul album is a song I really enjoy. I was introduced to it while watching Dead Presidents as a kid. Years later, it's still a pleasure to hear Hayes' soulful voice and emotional lyrics, along with the track's bevy of instruments. Take a listen to it below.
