Blue Eyed Soul

Dan Penn, for example, wrote two songs associated with black soul performers: "Do Right Woman-Do Right Man" (for Aretha Franklin) and "The Dark End of the Street" (recorded by James Carr). Many blue-eyed soul performers are British, and several of these artists have actually been mistaken for being black.

Ironically, the "blue-eyed" artists who have had the longest careers in this genre have done so by building a significant black following, as exemplified by the success of Hall & Oates, George Michael and Teena Marie on the R&B charts in the 1980s.
