American soul singer songwriter Sam Cooke’s ‘(Somebody) Ease My Troublin’ Mind‘ was heard on Godfather of Harlem this week playing over the Godfather of Harlem, Season 3, Episode 7, “All Roads Lead to Malcolm” end credits.
The song was also played on the episode as Bumpy arrives home to find Mayme is baking a sweet potato pie.
Sam Cooke’s ‘(Somebody) Ease My Troublin’ Mind’ was written by the singer and was released in January, 1965 as a song on the album Shake.
It was the last song on the album but, in my mind, one of its most standout tracks.
Shake itself was the first Cooke album released after the singer’s death due to a gunshot wound to the heart two years previously at the age of just 33-years-old.
The album charted at #1 on the U.S. Top R&B Albums chart, and at #44 on the then-Top LPs chart.
Listen to Sam Cooke’s ‘(Somebody) Ease My Troublin’ Mind‘ from the Godfather of Harlem, Episode 7 end credits on The Best of Sam Cooke album, and in the lyric video.
