Seeing and hearing Bonnie Raitt perform that song live here in Tulsa a few years back was the treat of a lifetime. The crowd went absolutely nuts!

I heard Bonnie play that song in Boulder, CO in the mid 70s, from the center of the front row. Total bliss. What a voice!

I like Tegan & Sara a lot, too, and Ingrid M. And the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (what I have heard). Thanks for reminding me of Immi. I had to squeeze her into my list. Smiler
