Numerous performers have recorded covers of the ageless classic "At Last," but none have been able to match Etta James' ability to convey the song's genuine emotion and soulful voice. When it was first released in 1960, the song was an immediate success and has since been a standard at weddings, romantic films, and playlists with a love theme.


The beginning of the song, which is languid and sensual and features a soft piano and saxophone, establishes the tone of the song. Then Etta's voice enters, silky soft and dripping with desire and need. After a protracted and lonely quest, Mack Gordon and Harry Warren's songs are about discovering that particular someone.

The song's words, "At last, my love has come along, my lonely days are over, and life is like a song," perfectly describe how it feels to find true love and the happiness that comes with it. These lyrics are brought to life by Etta's dynamic vocals, which allow the listener to feel every nuance of the song's emotions.


The classic song "At Last" solidifies Etta James' status as the Queen of Blues and is a testament to her amazing skill. For many decades to come, people will treasure and play this song.
