Aretha RIP

There's nothing I can write that could do Aretha justice, so I'll settle for just saying thanks for a lot of wonderful music and safe travels.

You may think the third selection seems an unlikely choice, and perhaps it is, but it brings back many happy memories for me of the summer of 1985 when I was young, free and courting a Norwegian nurse.

"Since You Been Gone" - Aretha Franklin

"Precious Memories" - Aretha Franklin

"Who's Zoomin' Who" - Aretha Franklin

  1. The Bside of the single "Who's Zoomin' Who" is "Sweet Bitter Love" and it's one of my all time Aretha Franklin favourites. Her voice swoops and soars and almost breaks. Makes me choke back the tears every time I listen. What a voice!
