Love love love this song! I always wanted to play Rizzo, but I can't sing.

Same here, my fav. character in Grease. And I sound just like her in the shower or the car when it's turned up full blast.

Etta James - she was a treasure, just like Billie Holiday. Good, heart wrenching soul.

this is the first post i saw when i visited. Etta James? And then song from Grease? I know i will love listening to the music here. By the way, Miss Lisa, you are the better half. Kenny is nice enough, but you beat him by a country mile.

Awww thank you Pigpen. I post a LOT of music for two reasons....I LOVE music...I could live in a world that speaking was not aloud, we relate to one another by song only...that would totally work for me....but the other is that my eyes get tired of type really quick, so I say what I am thinking and feeling by playing music. Give my eyes a break and give my ears an explosion of euphoria! And lastly...to me music is a gift, one that keeps on giving...someone may have never heard something I put on here and fall in love with it...or find an aha moment in a song...and well job done.

I guess that was three reasons....but there are lots of reasons for music. lol

Chickenmom, Etta is a National Treasure...such purity and earthiness in her voice as well as Billie H. Livin...I will NEVER tell.

One of my favorites from that era is Louis Armstrong singing What a Wonderful World. Makes my heart soar every time. I don't think anyone could listen to that and not come away feeling optimistic about life. And the man could play jazz trumpet the way it was meant to be played.
I saw Chuck Mangione live once. He plays the flugelhorn. That is an instrument that makes my heart feel romance. I am a musician, so I get your connection with music. It inspires, and makes life worth living, and is the first thing cut from school budgets, when it should be the first thing saved, instead of classes on how to feel good about your sexuality.
Sorry, didn't mean to rant. Carry on.
