The Queen of Soul

I've been listening to her Gospel album lately, and Ain't No Way would still be one of my Desert Island Discs, so I've booked to see Aretha live later this summer.

I know she's a bit past her sell by date, but I didn't see the Godfather of Soul until the 1990's. Also, I never went inside a World of Leather. I cannot think of another suitable Thing of Thing, and generally the third example is the funny one. Ah well. Comedy Bronze again.

Say a Little Prayer ...



I know this is close to sacrilegious, but when she sings, "And wondering what dress to wear now", tell me I'm not the only one thinking "And you chose that one."
