Joe South

Joe South died September 5.

A lot of people probably won't recognize his name, but his mark on pop music is indelible.

I admit, I was a big fan, and some of these videos will show why.  These are songs Joe wrote.







If you never heard of Joe South, you absolutely heard this song (over and over and over):



While Rose Garden may be Joe's most famous song, this one is my favorite:



This is the only video I could find of Joe himself, singing, "Don't It Make You Wanna Go Home":



Go on home, Joe.  And thanks for the timeless songs.
