This is how I'll forever remember her.  Not a bad actress either.

It's an illustration of how important she was to popular music that I can think of three tunes in my record collection, quite apart from the ones she recorded herself, that refer to her:

 

Hey Nineteen
That's 'Retha Franklin
She don't remember the Queen of Soul
It's hard times befallen
The soul survivors
She thinks I'm crazy
But I'm just growing old

 

 

 

There's nothing I wouldn't be
To get to be together
There's nothing I wouldn't be
My heart depends on me
There's nothing I wouldn't do
Including doing nothing
There's nothing I wouldn't do
For you to be with me now sugar

Each time I go to bed

I pray like Aretha Franklin

 

 

 

I got Aretha in the morning
High on my headphones and walking to school
I got the blues in springtime

'Cause I know that I'll never have the right shoes
Momma she'd notice but she's always crying
I got no one to confide in, Aretha nobody but you

Ooops, just posted in "All Encompassing..." thread before seeing this. 

 

I fondly remember her in that Blues Brothers role as well. Best movie ever.

It's always good when your dishwasher brings his sax to work....just in case.

Found this in a playlist of mine thanks to the other thread but think it deserves a better home here.

Spirit In The Dark (plus reprise with Uncle Ray)
