Etta James.


Etta James passed away today and that makes me sad. I remember when I first started getting into jazz, when I worked at the Museum of Fine Arts gift store in college, and every time Etta James "Love Songs" came on I'd get so excited. Then I stole it from the store and burned it on my computer. I still listen to it all the time. And, if I were to ever get married, I always thought I might use the above song as my wedding song. It's not traditional, it's not even a slow song, but I love it. It's on my list of "Favorite Songs Ever" that I don't actually have.

You should listen to Etta James. She had an amazing voice. The kind where you can actually feel everything she's singing about.

Rest in peace, Etta James.
