Happy birthday Ms. Etta James, born today in 1938. While best known for the delicate string serenade and huge vocals of “At Last,” I prefer her more raucous bluesy side, of which this song is a perfect example:
“I Just Wanna Make Love To You” – Etta James
Oh, you have GOT to love the lyrics, “All I want to do is wash your clothes . . . All I wanna do is make your bread, just to make sure you’re well fed. I don’t want you sad and blue, I just wanna make love to you, oooooo.” Every man’s domestic dream?
Although that is a whole intimidating lot o’ woman to love.
