Song Of The Day 11/19/2016: Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings – “What Have You Done For Me Lately”
Sharon Jones passed away yesterday after a well-documented battle with pancreatic cancer at age 60. Her songs were absolute killers. Her band rose above the pastiche label and seemed to be the most satisfied backup unit on the planet. There was nothing she couldn't make you believe in on a deep level. I was fortunate to see her do those two songs above in person a few years ago. It never struck me for a minute that she wouldn't survive. But in this season of gut checks, this is one that hits deep. Rest in peace Ms. Jones.
