Love This Song

I love the song "At Last."  I also like her renditions of "Purple Rain" and "Take It to the Limit" but "At Last" will always be my favorite Etta James song.

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song

Ohh yeah yeah
At last
the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Ohh yeah yeah…
You smile, you smile
oh And then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last

When the producers knew what they were doing with her, she could blow up any song she sang. She had a real gutteral blues based depth to her singing that I love. She also did a great version of the Stones Miss You, too.

OOoooohhhh I have always loved that song!!!! :-)

She is simply amazing. I have to agree with you there. i will check that out and thanks.

I adore Etta. I think she is probably my favorite female vocalist. Have you listened to "I'd rather go blind" or "A Sunday kind of Love"....they are amazing! She is AMAZING! I recommend that you invest in "Etta James, The Chess 50th Anniversary Collection", if you haven't already. It does not contain her entire catalogue, but it has a lot of her best stuff. Check it out!

Thanks. I love it a lot. it makes me smile often these days.

Great Song FG!!!!! Enjoy that song....

I will have to take a listen to that as well. thank you.

I ran across a song by her called Sugar on the Ground -- not as good as At Last but gooooooooooooood

Ok... Give me a little while and I will sweetie.

Thanks dear.

Want me to send you a copy?

That is a great version too. I love it.

just listening to Lou Rawls doing it!!

I agree. No one can pull it off like her. People try to sing her song and when you hear them you're like "NOPE!" lol
