Things These Artists Have “Got,” Vol. 1

A lot of good songs over the years seem to have the words "I Got," "I've Got," "We Got," or "We've Got" in their titles. I notice dumb things like this. And what do I do when I notice them? I post a four-part miniseries featuring said songs, of course! Enjoy? ~  JH

1)  James Brown  ~  I Got You (I Feel Good)”

2)  Jana Kramer  ~  “I Got The Boy”

3)  Pearl Jam  ~  “I’ve Got A Feeling”  (This is a cover of a Beatles song. I had a video of Paul McCartney performing it all ready to post, but I actually ended up liking this version better. Go figure!)

4)  Ciara  ~  “I Got You”

5)  The Rolling Stones  ~  “I Got The Blues”

6)  Ethel Merman  ~  “I Got Rhythm”

7)  Young The Giant  ~  “I Got”  (What've they “got”? You’ll have to listen to find out.)
