Al Green's 1972 has as many great songs as most artists crank out in a career: Let's Stay Together, You Ought to Be With, Look What You've Done for Me and this one. After Let's Stay, I'm Still in Love With You is the one scorches the hottest. Green simple oozes seduction while making one of the least interesting pronouncements in all of pop: That love I had for you before, I still have that now. In the hands of any lesser artist, this could be boring -- but holy cow not in Al green's hands. His sound is so distinctive, too and washed over the whole track. You Ought would've have also been eligble, but this one makes it this far because of its high comparable worth.
Coming up: #7 - "And let me try with pleasured hands"
