Some days, the mood requires more mellow and reflective music, without a guitar’s lash and a drum’s hammer so often found in rock. Rock is my known and preferred genre, so I lean that way.
But other genres and influences have nuzzled through way into me. So it is with today’s song. Written in 1941, Glenn Miller was the first force behind it, although he didn’t write it. Sung by many, it’s a signature song for one person for an entire generation. Others have famously covered it – like Cyndi Lauper and Beyonce Knowles – but Etta James comes to me.
‘At Last’. Life is like a song.
