That brother is about to get z snapped, with a side-order of neck slide.

That's Ms. Franklin to the likes of us.

There are icons, and there are icons. Aretha. She doesn't even need a last name - you can just walk into a room of people and say, "Aretha" and I bet every person there would know to whom you were referring.
I love Aretha - as I've related (countless times), I was deprived of "soul" music as a youngster, because of very bigoted parents. I didn't even know who she was until I got out of high school. Once those chains were broken, I "discovered" her, and holy cow - this woman could sing the rings off Saturn.
Well, my appreciation is better late than never. This song is a solid 10.
I agree... well said... miss you...

Didn't like it when it was new; like it less now.

Following Morphine's recording, this sounds like a 78rpm record..it is a shame how 'flat' recordings were.This is one example of a song that is much better on vinyl.

Glad to see her looking much better.

You forgot the most important line: "We're on a mission from God."
"Don't you blaspheme in here! Don't you blaspheme in here!"

Was that Floyd Vonnegut from Saginaw? Because if it was...
...it's proof that God has a wickedly perverse sense of humor.

I tried to feel jaded about this song, but when it came to rating, I couldn't honestly give it less than 10. This is Godlike. It has a palpable sense of divinity about it.
