Funk Friday: “You Can’t Be Told,” Valerie June

Standard

I worship at the altar of Valerie June.  What a fabulously unique voice – so clear and sharp against the growl of the guitars.  This song makes me want to be:

a) in a coordinated dance routine with random patrons at a crowded bar, and/or

b) in a slow-motion movie scene in which I, the film’s protagonist, a wise-cracking hitwoman, am walking down a street in a major metropolis dressed in all black.  Plus aviators and heels.  Natch.

As neither of these things is going to happen, at least not anytime soon and not without a lot of paperwork, I’ll settle for putting this on in the background to help me push through a grouchy Friday afternoon and into a much more fun Friday evening.
