Usually when I’m in a bad mood I turn to classic soul or gospel. It always gets me through.
It’s the last Friday of Women’s History Month so this edition is ladies only. Happy OSF, visit the other participants via OBW’s site.
Nina Simone – Ohh Child
I love this version!
Aretha Franklin – Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Patti Labelle – The Lord’s Prayer
I love Patti when she just sings and not screams at me.

ESPN Magazine has a cover story with Candace Parker. Read it here.
“It is this unprecedented combination of game, generosity and gorgeous that has Team Parker seeing miracles. They believe with all their collective heart that their 22-year-old, 6’4″ stunner with the easy smile and perfect, white teeth will soon be the most recognized woman in American sports.”

Like they say on Jeopardy, notice the heart in quotation marks…
Bee Gees – How Do You Mend a Broken Heart (1971)
Sly & The Family Stone – Trip to Your Heart (1967)
(Bonus points if you can name the artist & song title that should this as a sample. No cheating!!)
And… Irene Cara & Philip Michael Thomas – Look Into Your Heart (1976). I know Marvalus will appreciate this one.
