"At Last" as written by Harry Warren and Mack Gordon....
At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song, oh yeah
At last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up clover the night I looked at you
I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill I've never known, oh yeah
You smiled, you smiled oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven
For you are mine at last

    My OpinionWhat a song! What a voice! What a woman! This is Etta James' signature song and I will never get tired of hearing it no matter how many times I play it.

    General CommentOMG. RIP Etta. You were/are one of my favorite artists. And this song is so incredibly beautiful. I shall always remember the blonde hair color at a time in history when even something as unimportant as that was pushing boundaries. Very very sad news today, but her music will forever live on...

    General CommentThis is one of the few songs ever that I could never get tired of listening to. The lyrics are superb, the music is beautiful, and the singing is incomparable. There's no song quite like this; it's sexy, romantic, and gives me goosebumps every single time I hear it.

    General CommentI think my favorite little movie segment ever is in Pleasantville, when this song is playing, and they are driving through a windy road surrounded by blossoming trees that are all turning to color and the petals are falling all over the car. I looooove those ten seconds.
