“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.”
Happy 96th birthday, Ella!
One of the greatest voices of all time.

My favourite Sade fashion moment, at Live Aid 1985.
for sticky bayou nights, for low hanging branches over dirt lanes, for whiskey and scarred old barstools, for southern churches, for graveyards and mausoleums, for dark water below the moon, for hoodoo and juju, for delta blues, for end of summer storms and rolling thunder, for ghosts and ghouls, for worn leather boots, for guitar calloused hands, for the drunk piano player, for the edge of darkness, for raised hair at your nape, for pleas at the crossroads, for prayer, for the past you can’t outrun, for sinners, for angels, for the coffin-builders, for the gallows, for love and for the loveless, for sweat and dirt and blood -

Listen to “True Romance” here.
Take Me There (Back to Tennessee), a Summer in the South Playlist
Back To Tennessee (Billy Ray Cyrus)
Great big town so full of users/make a million/still a loser/some will bet on you to win/most hope you won’t/…I know just what I need/to find my way back to Tennessee.
American Saturday Night (Brad Paisley)
It’s a French kiss/Italian ice/Spanish moss in the moonlight/just another American/I’m just another American/and it’s just another American Saturday night.
The Heat (Needtobreathe)
Push the life that brought you here away from you tonight/there’s a place where the pain can’t touch ya/a place where the fire can’t burn ya/just the sound of your voice tonight/singing your own song.
Sparks Fly (Taylor Swift)
Get me with those green eyes baby/as the lights go down/gimme something that will haunt me when you’re not around/…just keep on keeping your eyes on me/just wrong enough to make it feel right.
Wanna Take You Home (Gloriana)
You should never be lonely/you’re the best I’ve ever seen/I wanna take you back to my place/you can do your dance on the kitchen floor/I wanna hear your boots knocking down that hallway/right on through that bedroom door.
We Owned the Night (Lady Antebellum)
Do you remember when/we woke under a blanket/all tangled up in skin?…/but it was perfect/I never will forget/yeah/we owned the night.
I Got a Feelin’ (Billy Currington)
I don’t wanna rush this thing/I don’t wanna jump the gun/I really wanna say those three little words/but I’m gonna bite my tongue/yeah/…I got a feeling/you’re feeling it too.
Lullaby (Dixie Chicks)
Tomorrow there’ll be so much to do/so tonight I’ll drift in a dream with you/how long do you want to be loved?/is forever enough, is forever enough?/how long do you wanna be loved/is forever enough?/cause I’m never never giving you up.
Take Me There (Rascal Flatts)
There’s a place in your heart/where nobody’s been/take me there/things nobody knows/not even your friends/take me there/tell me about your momma/your daddy/your hometown/show me around/I wanna see it all/don’t leave anything out.
Flat on the Floor (Carrie Underwood)
Now I’m flat on the floor with my head down low/where the sky can’t rain on me anymore/don’t knock on my door/cause I won’t come/I’m hiding from the storm til the damage gets done/you ain’t gonna get to me tonight/I’ll lay right here til it all blows through.
Bless the Broken Road (Carrie Underwood & Rascal Flatts)
Every long lost dream/led me to where you are/others who broke my heart/they were like northern stars/pointing me on my way/into your loving arms/this much I know is true/that God blessed the broken road/that let me straight to you.
Better Get to Living (Dolly Parton)
You better get to living/giving/be willing and forgiving because all healing has to start with you/…the day we’re born/we start to die/don’t waste one minute of this life/get to living/share your dreams and share your laughter.
