Old School Music of the Day

The whole Aretha Franklin/Condeleeza Rice performance made me nostalgic for classic Aretha. So, I began looking into her performance history and I discovered that the song which is probably her most famous was a cover. By that I mean it wasn’t originally written or performed by her. Just as she covered Dionne Warwick’s “Say a Little Prayer For You” which she sang the hell out of, she also re-made Respect, by Otis Redding. Take a look and listen as the late great Otis Redding performs “Respect”!
