    Her music is so perfect for anytime…it’s my favourite vinyl in my collection I think. Nice she has been a muse too.

      It’s so fantastic to read that you love her music so much !!! She’s such an iconic “chanteuse” (I’ve read that Mick Jagger was crazy about her but that she didn’t want him !!!). XO
