Text Quotes
When I look out at the people and they look at me and they’re smiling, then I know that I’m loved. That is the time when I have no worries, no problems.  (Etta James Quotes) People always say ‘Etta, you know what your problem is? You’re neither fish nor fowl. There is no place to rack you.’ When I would go in a record shop, you might find one or two records by me in different stacks  (Etta James Quotes) Jazz took too much discipline. You have to come in at the right place, which is different than me singing the blues, where I can sing, ‘Oh, baby,’ if there’s a pause in the melody. With jazz, you better leave that space open, or put in something real cool  (Etta James Quotes) I wanna show that gospel, country, blues, rhythm and blues, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll are all just really one thing. Those are the American music and that is the American culture  (Etta James Quotes) A few years ago, I thought, I’ll never make it. I started to go to the doctor to help me lose weight  (Etta James Quotes) Johnny Guitar... just one of my favorite singers of all time. I met him when we were both on the road with Johnny Otis in the 50s when I was a teenager. We traveled the country in a car together. I would hear him sing every night  (Etta James Quotes) Long as I was riding in a big Cadillac and dressed nice and had plenty of food, that’s all I cared about  (Etta James Quotes) But even so, I still get nervous before I go onstage  (Etta James Quotes) I took back my life  (Etta James Quotes) When I’m performing for the people, I am me, then. I am that little girl who, when she was five years old, used to sing at church. Or I’m that 15-year-old young lady who wanted to be grown and wanted to sing and couldn’t wait to be smokin’ a cigarette, you know?  (Etta James Quotes) When Malcolm X was assassinated I was working at the Apollo. They brought his body to the Unity Funeral Home, which was around the corner  (Etta James Quotes) You can’t fake this music. You might be a great singer or a great musician but, in the need, that’s got nothing to do with it. It’s how you connect to the songs and to the history behind them.  (Etta James Quotes) Most of the songs I sing have that blues feeling in it. They have that sorry feeling. And I don’t know what I’m sorry about. I don’t.  (Etta James Quotes) I don’t care who’s playing. Even if it’s my favorite artist, I’m probably not gonna go and see him.  (Etta James Quotes) Most of the songs I sing, they have that blue feeling to it. They have that sorry feeling. And I don’t know what I’m sorry about.  (Etta James Quotes) See, I don’t like places where people can’t dance - don’t like clubs or theatres where a bunch of bourgeois people sit around tip, tip, tipping their fingers.  (Etta James Quotes) To me, country music is like the blues, but it’s something very hip and - I don’t want to say commercial - but it’s very worldly and good listening.  (Etta James Quotes) What happens is, when I perform, I’m somewhere else. I go back in time and get in touch with who I really am. I forget my troubles, my worries.  (Etta James Quotes) The music was thunder and joy. Lightning bolts of happiness and praise, foot-stomping, dance-shouting, good-feeling singing from the soul  (Etta James Quotes) The two things you can’t fake are good food and good music  (Etta James Quotes) When I’m singing the blues, I’m singing life  (Etta James Quotes) In some ways, it’s my rage that keeps me going  (Etta James Quotes) I like to shop, but I don’t like to go out to dances  (Etta James Quotes) I’m not a bourgeois person, never will be  (Etta James Quotes) I’m not starry eyed, and I’m not money crazy  (Etta James Quotes) I was a sloppy kid, wanted to be just wild  (Etta James Quotes) I sing the songs that people need to hear  (Etta James Quotes) It feels so good to be happy  (Etta James Quotes) I am so happy that I am alive and can walk  (Etta James Quotes) Once you lose the weight, you’re really anxious to eat healthy  (Etta James Quotes)
