220px-i_got_you_i_feel_good_album#8 – James Brown – “I Got You (I Feel Good)” – (1966)

That opening scream is your hint that you’re in for a funky, soulful ride on James Brown’s signature song. I’m pretty sure it’s been used in almost every movie that takes place in the 1960s. Remarkably, this was James Brown’s highest charting hit (he had 99 of them) only reaching #3. Doesn’t seem right for one of the most recognizable songs of the decade.
