At Last

Etta James passed away this week. I've never been a big fan of her voice, but I like some of her songs.

People have been giving tributes to her by singing her most famous song, At Last. I guess it's kind of a tradition that when a famous singer dies, people would pay homage to them by singing their most well-known song at their funeral.

I just find it weirdly inappropriate that when Etta James passed away, everybody starts singing At Last. It almost sounds like we've been waiting for her death for so long that when it finally happened, people are like, "At laaaaaaaaaast!"

But not singing it would also be inappropriate.
