My music playlist for today (June 14, 2012 edition)

Again, this week’s music playlists are an attempt to focus on those ladies of song who could step out of one genre and be just as big in another, whether it’s opera or rock or jazz or country or soul or any combination of any style.

When it comes to classic rock, there are a fair amount of singers to choose from.  I have to go with someone who’s done it time after time, and that’s Anna Mae Bullock — otherwise known as Tina Turner.

You could easily say that Tina is a soul singer, just as easily as you could say she’s a pop singer or a rock or R&B singer.  She’s even done country music.

The struggles she’s gone through in her life have surely given her the background to sing with the kind of guts and emotion that she has through the years

Tina’s life has been a tough one, and she’s come through it all with a lot of style.  She’s made it big, faded a bit (through no fault of her own), and come back bigger than ever — even managing to do some terrific turns in the movies.

She’s proven time after time that there’s nothing going to keep her down.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at http://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
