Happy Birthday Etta James!

MAGNIFICENT. "At last / my love has come along..."
IMPERIOUS. "Don't let the sun find you cryin / cryin at my front door / you done mama dirty / she don't want you no more ... oh baby you can wail / beat your head on the pavement / til the man come and throw you in jail / But don't let the sun find you crying at my front door."
AFFLICTED. "These foolish things remind me of you."

Love Etta. In terms of sad and angry women vocalists, I gotta say that I rank Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Dinah Washington a bit higher.
