"I Got Soul" is a 2009 charity single by charity group War Child UK, recorded by Young Soul Rebels. It was released on 19 October 2009. It is a cover of The Killers' "All These Things That I've Done", written by their frontman Brandon Flowers. A spokesman for War Child UK said, "We're using the track, based around the hook line ‘I Got Soul, But I’m Not A Soldier’ to draw attention to the 300,000 children who sadly are"[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video is set in the studio where the song was recorded. It mainly features the Young Soul Rebels singing but also has clips of children in poverty, symbolizing what War Child charity is for. The cover art for the single also flashes up occasionally, as does the War Child logo.[2]

Young Soul Rebels[edit]

The Young Soul Rebels is the name of the various artists that took part in the song:

Tulisa from N-Dubz sang Pixie Lott's lines during their performance of the song at the 2009 MOBO Awards.
