Small Object of Desire #89 – Emotion

This song, Feeling Uneasy, is startling because for pretty much all of its 2 minutes and 50 seconds, Etta James manages to let you know exactly why she is feeling uneasy without using any words except for a couple of lords and the title of the song said once right at the end. The rest is the incomparable Etta James emoting via oohs, aahs, yowls, a bit of scat singing. You feel her pain for sure.

Stirring, startling stuff!
