Music Monday heats up with @ArethaFranklin

The “Queen of Soul,” Aretha Franklin turned 75 this past weekend. Her last album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics released in 2014 and features hits from singers Adele, Alicia Keys, and others.

Though I like Aretha’s rendition of these songs, I much prefer the ones she popularized — “Respect,” in particular.

It’s a simple thing, but it means a lot when we deal with people.

We want and expect it. We should treat others with it.

Certainly in today’s tumultuous climate, we can all use more of it.

Enjoy, and have a great week.

Musical Mondays – Adele

In keeping with the theme of young, fresh, female voices this month, Adele is a British singer-songwriter from Tottenham, England.  She has a soulful, mature voice for a 23 year old, and this song is heartbreaking if you’ve ever loved and lost.

If you’re in the mood for a good cry, listen to her mega hit “Someone Like You.”

” … Never mind
I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead …”
