Etta James: A Sunday Kind of Love

Happy Valentine's Day!
In honor of the day, I thought I'd share one of the truest love songs I know: A Sunday Kind of Love, sung by the queen of romance, Etta James. Aside from the gorgeous melody and Ms. James' emotional delivery, it's the lyrics I love about this song. It's a pop song about love that isn't all hyped up and idealized and glam. It's simple and true and real. Who doesn't want love like this?

I want a Sunday kind of love
A love to last past Saturday night
I'd like to know it's more than love at first sight
I want a Sunday kind of love

Listen to new Etta James tunes (including her version of "Purple Rain") on the Etta James Official Website

Side note: my husband took me to an Etta James concert the night he proposed to me...smart guy, huh?
