Loleatta Holloway's life well lived

Though Loleatta Holloway sang many famous songs, I think this 1998 cover
of a classic Style Council song is my favorite.




That is pure joy.

And when you're knocked on your back and your life's a flop
And when you're down on the bottom, there's nothing else
But to shout to the top, we're gonna shout to the top!

Good choice XO, and Fire Island is so cute. My favourite is I Can't Help Myself from Cry To Me (the only LH album I own).

Fuck. I didn't know Loleatta Holloway had died.

Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
