Besides the classics, I Knew You Were Waiting For Me is a nice piece of 80's pop. All-time, probably Until You Come Back To Me, especially after hearing her and Stevie do it live.

Much love sent her way.

Not saying it’s my all-time fave of hers, but I’m reappreciating “Jump To It” right now. Was spinning the Young, Gifted and Black album earlier on as well.

- my #1 Aretha song is hands down, "Holdin' On" from her "So Damn Happy" album from 2003. <3

Hungry? Just look in the mirror and get fed up.

- Anyway my favourite song of hers (Aretha's) is "You make me feel like a natural woman", although Think, Respect and Rocksteady are right there too.

This is the place where emotions grow. 24 Feelings all in a row, its alright, its alright

Aretha from Greek αρετη (Arete)

meaning Beauty; Virtuous; excellent.

I like that when you say Aretha you are saying Beauty Virtuous Excellent

LMAO! All I can say is Madonna and her fans should be very damn happy that I had absolutely no interest in watching the MTV VMAs because I'm actually from the D and STILL not over her bullshitting ass Prince 'tribute'. So had I been watching, the dumb shit I heard she did last night, as a so-called "tribute" to Queen Auntie ReRe...I'd be in the midst of dragging her happy ass Uptown, Downtown, Midtown, Crosstown. Northside, Southside, East and West!

Detroit, what's happening? headbang

I love almost all of her stuff but...

I have this weird obession with the Live at the Filmore album from beginning to end. It's not just the Ray Charles cameo but the band that's backing her is King Curtis. His set is also a great record from the same night.

[EDIT] Because of this post and my "weird obsession" I just bought the limited edition version of the Filmore album with all kinds of unreleased tunes. Thanks for this post.

Her work with Luther rocks!
Last week i heard "Get it Right" being aired at a mall. What a great and surprising moment that was. Other faves of mine from the albums "Jump To it", "Get it Right" and also the two albums which were released just before those are:
- If She Don't Want Your Lovin' (love her lil' "skit" during the song lol)
- It's Just Your Love
- It's Your Thing (with fenomenal bass slaps and tight horn/string arrangements)
- Just My Daydream (ends in a moody atmosphere)
- When You Love Me like That
- Love Hurts You The Right Way (duet with George Benson)
- What A Fool Believes (tight bass & horns)
