177852, What's on your list of essential Roots songs?
Posted by souleditor9, Thu Aug-14-08 08:45 AM
My friend Tina and I went to see the Roots and Jill Scott in MD two weeks ago, and she has been completely converted to being a fan (Thanks in part to Kirk's AMAZING "You Got Me" solo!).

I promised her that I would make her a CD of the "essential" Roots songs that she needed to have. I'm having a hard time narrowing down the essentials. Here's what I have so far:

1. Proceed, Pt. 1
2. Proceed, Pt.2
3. Concerto of the Desperado
4. The Next Movement
5. Dynamite
6. Double Trouble
7. Love of My Life
8. You Got Me (Live)
9. Thought @ Work
10. The Seed
11. Break You Off
12. Complexity
13. Star
14. Don't Say Nuthin'
15. Web
16. Boom
17. Don't Feel Right
18. Take it There
19. Here I Come
20. Lost Desire
21. Rising Up
22. What You Want

What's on your list of Roots essentials? Anything else I am missing or that I should include?
