RIP Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul
What a mark Aretha made on the history of music in my lifetime, from the earlier hits of "Respect" and "Chain of Fools," to my all-time favorite, "Freeway of Love." That song was released in 1985, just a few years after I came out. It was my favorite dance song of the 80s. Her voice just kept you moving to the beat! Plus, the saxophone solo by Clarence Clemons was exhilarating.
It's cool how the video is in black and white until the very end when the car with a RESPECTful license plate turns PINK!
