    Aretha Franklin

    15.jpg


    Aretha Louise Franklin (March 25, 1942 – August 16, 2018) was an American singer and pianist. She began her career as a child singing gospel at New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan, where her father, C. L. Franklin, was minister. In 1960, at the age of 18, she embarked on a secular career, recording for Columbia Records but achieving only modest success. After signing to Atlantic Records in 1966, Franklin achieved commercial acclaim and success.

    By the end of the 1960s she was being called "The Queen of Soul".

    Aretha Franklin was surrounded by loved ones at the time of her death but her famed voice had fallen silent.

    One of those to pay their respects to the Queen of Soul before her passing was Stevie Wonder, who revealed he and Franklin had made plans to make new music just months ago.

    “We talked about doing some music, as recent as two months ago, we talked about it,” Wonder, 68, said in an interview Friday on CBS This Morning.

    “And so…,” the singer trailed off as he choked back tears. “I thought I cried my last tear, I said I’d get it together… I flew out from L.A. to Detroit and went to see her and spoke to her.”

    “She wasn’t able to speak back, but her family felt that she could hear me. I told her to say hello to my sister that I lost this year as well,” he said, referring to the death of his sister, Renee Hardaway, in May.

    I love Bright Eyes, but I can't hear it without thinking of Dawn French serenading bunnies she'd just freed in Girls On Top.






    A little late, but what the heck:

    I confess: I Say a Little Prayer is a pet peeve of mine.

    I love the 1991 remix of Think (remixed by U96, of all artists)

    Big dancefloor stomper.

    Interestingly, that year also saw the remix of the Rock queen's smash hit:


    plus!
    the remix of the Disco queen's smash hit:


    Wow, that's uncanny!

    That's an interesting comment. In what way does it peeve you?


    Oh my. It sounds like the theme to an Eighties Saturday morning kids TV show. Especially the ending.

    Well, pet peeve was the wrong choice of words to describe it. What I should have said was that I downright loathe it.
