Tonight's song is 'Lazy Bones' by Hoagy Carmichael.
Hoagy Carmichael has far too much to talk about in his career to condense it here.
He is responsible for writing 'Stardust,' 'Georgia On My Mind,' and 'Heart and Soul' amongst others.
He was a multi-talented person and acted in addition to his musical persuits.
Here is Hoagy Carmichael performing 'Lazy Bones.'
And how about his original version of 'Georgia On My Mind' as the bonus track for today.

Tonight's Soulful Sunday is inspired by Eric Burdon & War's 'Magic Mountain.'
Before being discovered by Eric Burdon, War was known as Nightshift and served as the backing band for a Los Angeles Rams football player's singing gigs at small nightclubs. After seeing them perform Burdon joined the group, changed their name to War, and got rid of two horn players in favor of a harmonica player.
In 1969 they found success with the lead single 'Spill the Wine' off their first release, Eric Burdon Declares War. They would only record one more album before Burdon quit the group in the middle of their 1971 European tour, citing 'exhaustion.'
War went on to find a great deal of success later on without Burdon, eventually recording the smash hits 'Why Can't We Be Friends' and 'Low Rider,' perhaps their most well known songs.
Tonight's song, 'Magic Mountain,' appeared as the b-side to 'Spill the Wine.'
And hey, why not, here is the a-side 'Spill the Wine':

Hi everyone, I went for a short 14 hour drive yesterday, so that is why there was no comic.
Today there is two, so I bet if you were disappointed yesterday today you will feel extra awesome.
I think it is Shark Week on television this week, so it will be Shark Fun Facts Weeks on here.
