As a bonafide weirdo, I really relate to her songs. To borrow a phrase, I don't know her but I feel like she knows me. It's not secret that you can learn a lot about a person by the music they treasure, and I love the hell out of Baby Washington!
And so today, on her 74th birthday, I would like to thank her for singing the soundtrack of my heart. The Record of the Day is one of those songs.
