Something happened so… a Valentine’s Day song

Friday, February 12, 2016




…at the Washington State Labor Council’s Legislative Reception last night and it caused technical difficulties for The Entire Staff of The Stand. Therefore, you’ll have to wait until next week for your next set of news links. Thank you for your understanding and please stop talking so loudly.

Sincerely, TESOTS




► On this day in 1972, this song hit No. 1 on the U.S. singles chart. It’s been covered by Tina Turner and dozens of other singers — including, briefly but memorably, President Barack Obama — but nobody sings it like the Rev. Al Green. If you need some music to set the Valentine’s Day mood this weekend, you can’t do much better than this. Enjoy!
