Happy Birthday Etta!

I love, love, love Etta James. I was insanely unhappy about freakin' Beyonce playing her in the movie, and even more perplexed as to why she sang "At Last" at the inauguration, despite Ms. James being alive and well and in fact still touring.

But all of that aside... here is Etta singing my favorite song ever in the history of all songs, ever- Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer's "Come Rain or Come Shine." (No, really. I actually made myself a cd that is composed entirely of various versions of this song. It's been my favorite since childhood.)
