with me that everyday
something has tried to kill me
and has failed.”
-Lucille Clifton, an excerpt from the poem “won’t you celebrate with me”
I love this Bettye Swann cover of the Aaron Neville classic.
A timeless, flawless hit that embodies pop, R&B, and the standards of the Great American Songbook.
Yola gets down to the essence of the longing and self-acceptance at the heart of this epic Elton John hit.
The original lady MC always fits right in.
Pure pop bliss.
