Aretha Franklin has been a part of my musical persona and personal existence since my coming of age... Her passing is a marker and reminder of my own mortality...

She's already missed...

I suspect that there isn't a person here who couldn't write a post about Aretha Franklin...

She once said that this duet with Frank Sinatra was her favorite...  I can see why.  Not only did she kill it, but she made Sinatra do his best to keep up. 

To me that is her legacy... "Step up your damn game (whatever it might be) or sit the hell down!"
