Last month we lost of the music industry’s most iconic and influential singers of all time, Etta James. She was traditionally a church, jazz and blues singer but she mixed those roots with funky, soulful, rock’n’roll sounds and was considered a sharp-tongued, bad girl in her time. Etta had a very distinctively deep, raw and raspy, gritty, growly tone to her voice but could also keep it smooth and sultry when she wanted to. Here are my top 10 favourite Etta James songs:

10) Security

9) Tough Lover

8) A Sunday Kind Of Love

7) Tell Mama

6) Pay Back

5) I Prefer You

4) I’d Rather Go Blind

3) Something’s Got A Hold On Me

2) I Just Wanna Make Love To You

1) Tighten Up Your Own Thing
