So...I guess this is my 500th post here at TGOG and, while I personally tend to shrug that kind of thing off, it is a milestone which needs to be recognized. And you all know how I'll use any excuse to post off-topic video.
It's my personal opinion that the greatest singer who ever lived is Aretha Franklin. I've always said that if God had a singing voice, He'd sound like Aretha. However, I think a very close second is Dusty Springfield. While her voice isn't quit as full as Aretha's, it does have a subtleness to it that I think Aretha lacks. Her voice is just this incredible instrument with an extraordinary range. She can do old school R & B, pop, ballads-Dusty could sing anything. Plus she had that blond beehive thing going on.
So to celebrate my 500th post, here's some of my favorite Dusty Springfield songs:
Twenty Four Hours From Tulsa
If You Go Away
Don't Let Me Lose This Dream
I Can't Make It Alone
You Don't Have To Say You Love Me
Nowhere To Run
