Betty Wright - Clean Up Woman (Medley)
If you havent heard Betty Wright before - quick - rush off and download something from her.
I mean it. This woman, this tough talking sass oozing, grab them by the balls woman is the real deal. Her song "Tonight's the night" has been one of my soundbytes but this song is sheer genius.
The song is pretty long - almost 12 minutes long but its a fun song. Like she is telling a story. But what trips me about this song is that ....Okay. The song is like a tribute to tough women. Women who have been through a lot of stuff but come out better and stronger. So towards the end of the song, she begins to list a few clean up women and they are well known people. As she says the name, she does an imitation of this person and its so eerie that she is spot on. Listen to the song to get it.
