Your favorite Aretha Franklin song

Yeah I know, yet another "What is favorite 'fill-in-the-blank'" question, but I think the Queen of Soul deserves a what is your favorite posting.

My favorite is Chain of Fools, followed closely by Think. I really like how Think was done in the Blues Brothers movie. It was when I first found out who sang that song.

So those are my two, what are yours.

Re: Your favorite Aretha Franklin song

God, all her songs are so overplayed these days. Especially thanks to wannabes murdering them on American Idol. I can barely listen to any of her '60s stuff anymore.

A really great song of hers from the '70s that's not overplayed is "Rock Steady". I also like her cover of Elton John's "Border Song".

'Chain of Fools' and 'A Natural Woman.'

Re: Your favorite Aretha Franklin song

I love all the suggestions so far - natch - but maybe my favorite is "Good to Me as I Am to You." "Ain't No Way" is another fabulous song.

She actually has one disco-y song that I really like, too - "Another Night." Hey, what can I say? Aretha transcends the genre!
