I just received a chain text.

In the latter half of 2014.

Do I still die/kill someone/deny Jesus/have 7 years of bad luck if I only opened it to clear the notification?

Gimme Shelter

Let it Bleed, 1969

This is an excerpt of the song “Gimme Shelter.” The backing vocalist, Merry Clayton, had a small solo in the middle of the song, and since I believe she never got much credit for her vocals, I uploaded the isolated vocal track of her part. I always wondered who she was and I found out recently.She is a very experienced backup singer and has also done backup vocals (live and studio) for artists such as Ringo Starr, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Neil Young, and moreThis solo may just make the song for me. Her voice is so raw and powerful. Each time I listen to it, I get chills. The effect is much stronger when her voice is isolated.

THIS IS AMAZING THIS IS AMAZING THIS IS AMAZING

THIS IS SO AMAZING I DON’T HAVE TIME TO ADDRESS OP’S RIDICULOUSLY SUPERFICIAL DESCRIPTION OF MERRY CLAYTON OR HOW SHE FUCKING MADE THIS SONG I’M TOO BUSY CRYING AT THE RAW POWER OF HER VOICE

TRUE STORY SHE RECORDED THIS AFTER GETTING A PHONE CALL AFTER MIDNIGHT FROM THE PRODUCERS. SHE LAID THIS TRACK DOWN AFTER BEING ASLEEP, WHILE WEARING ROLLERS IN HER HAIR AND A ROBE

OH YEAH AND SHE WAS PREGNANT AS FUCK.

SHE ALSO MISCARRIED AFTER THIS SESSION, SUPPOSEDLY FROM THE PHYSICAL/EMOTIONAL STRAIN FROM THIS SESSION

(SOURCE FOR ALL OF THIS)

SO THIS VOCAL TRACK IS REALLY FUCKING IMPORTANT AND REALLY KINDA FUCKING SACRED. EVERYONE CAN GLORIFY SOME WHITE ROCKER FOR STEALING BLACK MUSIC AND BEING DRUNK AND HIGH AS FUCK WHILE DOING SO BUT THE BLACK WOMEN LIKE CLAYTON WHO WERE THE BACKBONE AND SHAPERS
OF ROCK AND ROLL AND FUCKING WENT THROUGH SOME REAL ASS SHIT FOR IT ARE IGNORED

AND IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT MERRY CLAYTON WATCH 20 FEET FROM STARDOM IT’S ON NETFLIX

Listen to this when your spirit is ready.

These vocals will give you goosebumps. If you like music of any kind, you should definitely watch 20 Feet From Stardom.

When I was in 2nd grade this girl tried to call me white

Not because I had different interests

No

But because I wasn’t darkskinned

I deadass looked at her like

True story: in 2013, a coworker told me she didn’t think of me as ‘true black’ because I’m not dark skinned.
