"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin
An American musical icon passed away yesterday. One of my favorite Blues Singers...Etta James. I posted this song by her about a year ago. It's a ring tone on my cell phone...my wife's. On occasion, if I am in a store and my wife calls, I get lots of stares. Maybe because most people don't associate this type of song as "guy like". Fuck 'em.
This is probably Etta's best known song and it is a beauty. It's one of those snuggle up, belly contact, dreamy, "my god I am in love" songs...with or without a little merlot. It is definitely in the category of "It Had To Be You", another killer for every romantic ever born.
Thank you Etta.This glass is for you, baby!
