JB’s biggest hit, and undoubtedly the song most associated with him is “I Got You (I Feel Good),” which went to # 3 in 1965. Brown, who racked up an astonishing 44 Top Forty hits (and many earlier hits on the R & B charts), invariably used the same winning formula for all his hits: 1 part melody and 1 part harmony per 20 parts rhythm, with the whole band joining the rhythm section in punctuating the syncopated figures.
