Aretha and the Music

Aretha Franklin, the “Queen of Soul”, exits this passing show – and we have the music.

“It’s funny about music… music is like… music is one of the ways by which you can know everything which is going on in the world. You can feel… through music… Whew… you can feel the vibrations of everybody in the world at any given moment,” noted Nina Simone, the “High Priestess of Soul”.

Celebrating, communicating, commemorating, through music. Paying tribute, the way she does, here’s Allison Crowe with “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)”, the Ronnie Shannon-composed song that’s the breakout hit for Aretha in 1967.

Hurt


This is what I recorded the other day - NIN’s  “Hurt”  (by Trent Reznor, on “The Downward Spiral”) - recently requested and also requested by a friend 20 years ago, - who have birthdays 2 days apart it appears - so, I figured it was about time - happy birthday, Josh, and Kristen ️ 
Sidebar: when I think of people I’d love to record with one day - Trent always is in my brain. Perfect Drug is my favourite music video. Pretty Hate Machine is one of the albums that helped me through teenagehood (Cause I am a huge Tori Amos fan if that wasn’t obvious hahaha) . #music #nineinchnails #trent_reznor #recordings #vero  #toriamos
