Musical Musings A to Z: F is for Aretha Franklin
Happy Easter everyone – I hope you are still conscious and have not yet fallen into a chocolate coma… 😉
I’ve congratulated myself on my restraint so far this Easter break so I’m looking forward to rewarding myself with a little bit of chocolate plus the delights of a fruity hot cross bun later on today.
I’m also going to be enjoying the delights of the next stop on my musical journey through the alphabet. If you’ve missed my previous posts, you can find them here:
We are up to F and I have chosen to showcase the legendary Aretha Franklin in my musical musings posts today.
She is, quite simply, an amazing performer and an unbelievable singer – she IS soul.
This song rocks. There is no other way I can describe it. I LOVE it when this song plays in Bridget Jones’ Diary when Bridget resigns and leaves Daniel Cleaver in front of the whole office – sock it to him indeed!
I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)
Aretha proves she still has the voice and the soul and George Michael proves that he has the talent to match her. This is one of THE best songs from the 80’s – makes me feel like singing at the top of my lungs every time I hear it!
Here’s to F for Aretha Franklin – make sure you come back next week to continue on my musical alphabet quest!
