    I love you Aretha!


  2. - Belle - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 8:04 am:

    She is amazing! Aretha is a terrific choice—Thanx for finding a more unique song!


  3. - Positive thoughts - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 8:21 am:

    Thanks Rich for stepping outside your comfort zone…now maybe some Black magic woman could be next…Ya tu sabes..SANTANA..your readers are…wait for it..diverse!! Enjoy! Thank you Aretha!!


  4. - Grandson of Man - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 8:25 am:

    Raw and real. Aretha and BB King are living legends and our national treasures.


  5. - Biker - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 8:28 am:

    Great way to start the day


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 8:32 am:

    Ms. Franklin, indeed.

    Power, grace, passion, Ms. Franklin delivers like few did, can or ever will. Wow.

    I just closed my eyes and soaked it in. Great choice.


  7. - anon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 8:38 am:

    Getaway from Earth, Wind and Fire could be appropriate these days. Or, Thats the Way of the World!

    Aretha is an excellent selection.

    Finally something one can listen to and enjoy
    BTW 1968 was the year Ms. Franklin was incorrectly informed that the SIU Arena was not a sellout and she stiffed the Salukis
    We cannot excuse the snub, but love the tunes


  9. - The Captain - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 8:49 am:

    That voice, my god.


  10. - 2 Cents... - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 9:03 am:

    Aretha making me feel good in the morning! Sweet!

    Still is and will always be - The Queen of Soul…..


  12. - John A Logan - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 9:07 am:

    Aretha is the best. She was in the mold of Big Maybelle, Ruth Brown, and Big Mama Thornton, but what made her stand out was her range. She could soar vocally without ever losing the hint of breathy sex appeal that seemed ever present. Damn good choice this morning.


  13. - Not OW - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 9:09 am:

    Wow–you do take requests (at least, I think you do). Thanks, Rich.

    If I may be so bold, how about The Message? Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five never gets old.

    It’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under…


  14. - À guy - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 9:28 am:

    Everyone’s Godmama!That’s how you say good morning.


  15. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 9:34 am:

    ===Wow–you do take requests===

    If you requested it, I didn’t see it.

    Ain’t no jukebox, as Tom Irwin would say

    lol


  16. - Living in Machiaville - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 9:39 am:

    Hey Nineteen
    That’s ‘Retha Franklin
    She don’t remember
    The Queen of Soul
    It’s hard times befallin
    The sole survivors
    She thinks I’m crazy
    But I’m just growing old


  17. - Short but Slow - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 9:40 am:

    Great choice. Not a bad piano player either. That Muscle Shoals magic made her a star. Here’s another Muscle Shoals soul singer who’s not very well known but should be.

    Back in the day I successfully dumped an Association 45 by trading it for an Aretha 45, moving way up on the music food chain. She was, and is……apparently the new music coming out is great…..a wonder. Is that thin white guy in the black suit standing behind her hilarious?!? he’s so stiff!!!!
