At last
My love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song

Oh yeah yeah
At last

The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in 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 that I have never known

Oh yeah yeah
You smiled, you smiled
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine...

At Last

Sing it, Jamesetta!  I remember fondly the hours of listening to this (and the rest of) your Greatest Hits CD while doing my solo-cross country drive (Phila to Seattle, via Las Vegas) - I didn't have many disks to listen to, and many miles of radio-less road.  Something about the rich quality of your voice made me feel un-alone, and I thank you for that.  PEACE


Nice curve on the stats. Contrast it with that for the song before, or after.

As pithy as it gets: this one is highly rated because people like it–or that is the inference I draw from the high correlation between rating this song highly and the strength of the drive of the same people to focus their attention on the song when it is being played (or even when they are consciously seeking out that song, from any of a number of available sources, in order to listen to it, for any number of reasons, none of them negative).

GOOD LORD! Here we hear what they all wanted to be, tried to be, died to be... Here is a song that can both stop and start your heart!
Never tire of this one. A big 10 for me.

Let me correct you, This is an excellent piece of music...

How strange. . . is this more a self conditioning aspect of disregarding what your parents listened to rather than appreciating the music for what it is? 

Are you saying that if your parents listened to a piece of music that you can't appreciated it because they did? 

Oh dear. . .

Any better? How? A godlike 10.
This is currently the only track credited to a woman that appears on the Radio Paradise Classic Top 60 (excluding tracks that feature female vocalists, such as Clare Torry in Pink Floyd's "Great Gig in the Sky").

Feel free to explain yourselves.
