Music Monday: A Selection from the Queen, Aretha Franklin
I woke up this morning with this song stuck in my head. I'm not sure why, but it was and I had to play it a couple times. How amazing is this slow, sad, defiant number?
Written by Isaac Hayes, it was an outtake from her 1970 album "This Girl's In Love With You". The storytelling here is amazing and Aretha's delivery is, of course, flawless. I dare you to listen to it just once.
