I've Got Soul

Songfacts®:

  • Isaac Hanson described the brassy '70s feel of this song to The Toronto Sun. "It just kind of sounded like a show band," he said. "Somewhere between James Brown and some rhythms from Michael Jackson's 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough.' It's a really, really fun song to play. It's actually kind of exhausting. There's a lot of stuff in that song, you got to be on your toes. There's a lot of opportunities to screw up."
