You gotta move, says the song

Move where, says I

Move anywhere, says the song

But I'm tired, says I

Too bad, says the song, you gotta move

Why do I gotta, says I

Because it's time, says the song

It's really time, says I

It really is, says the song

If I must, says I

You really must, says the song

Let's boogie

I haven't heard of Sister Rosetta before tonight. I heard the song on the opening credits of a movie called Pay it Forward and was listening to the different versions. You really do Gotta move when you hear her version.

Here's the Wikipedia if you are like me. She was pretty amazing.

I did a post on her about a year ago. Considered an innovator when she went from a Gospel background to more secular music.

Yeah, baby. Move it!

Can I borrow your blog to brag a little? During Feb. in honor of black history month, I give an assignment to pull a name of a bluesman or woman from a bag, research their life and music, give a presentation about them to the class, and then make a portrait of them. A couple of my favorites:

Sister Rosetta

Big Mama Thornton

Robt. Johnson and his little buddy

Not to be naggy, but how's the painting going? :)

to truly appreciate Sister Rosetta, you want to see her moves, so so so good

aka, I'm sorry I missed your blog. I'm so sporadic on here that I miss a lot.

greenie, those are some great portraits! And that video had me shuffling as I went to feed the kittens. :) And the painting has taken shape in my head. One more thing to do for the dog application and the paints come out.

Oh man so good today, off from work alone in the house boogie in!
