junior_walker_and_the_all_stars_-_shotgun#16 – Junior Walker & the All Stars – “Shotgun” – (1965)

As I’m listening to it, it occurs to me that this song should be rated higher on this list. It’s a great soul record (produced by Berry Gordy for Motown sister-label “Soul Records”) with a killer organ and awesome sax from Mr. Walker himself. It peaked at #4 on the Hot 100.
