Kinda; also new wave:
I read that that this guy was only allowed to listen to gospel--and Sam Cooke, and Otis Redding--when he was a kid.

Look no further than Delaney and Bonnie.
There are a bunch of self-titled blue eyed soul dancers in England. As YouTube will show, it appears the dancers are solo, with no partner.
This kind of music is popular in northern England, it seems. Fun, brassy, james bond type melodies, with thick, heavily reverbed guitars.
In my hometown of Richland, Washington, kids would go to weekly dances played by local and regional bands. Some of the local bands played a lot of Rascals songs that my friends and I observed from 2 feet from the stage. We learned songs like Come On Up, Midnight Hour, Good Loving, How Can I Be Sure?, Love Is a Beautiful Thing, Mustang Sally, Knock On Wood, and others. My first band played our first gig with these songs as the backbone of our approach. The next step was our acquisition of Hendrix, Cream, and blues material.
I am heartened that the form is being reborn today. I'm not sure if the dancing is going to overpower the music on YouTube, but so far so good.

Weedy Synth Pop, better just stick with the original R&B / Soul tune by Gloria Jones.
Back on the Blue Eyed Soul trip, Sha La La's with Soul of the Nation!
Oops, sorry! I see this one was posted earlier. Eddie Hinton was a session player and songwriter down in Muscle Shoals. He was invited to join the Allman Brothers when they were forming, but declined. Here he is singing a song he co-wrote that was a hit for Percy Sledge. He worshipped Otis Redding and you can hear it.
Guess he was already represented here, but man I love this one.
