So, here are six Aretha Franklin essentials, that aren’t <em>Respect</em>.</p> <p><b><i>1. '</i>I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)'</b></p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-ly8rdagyv-0" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/LY8RdagYV-0?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe> </div> <p>The title track from Aretha’s tenth studio album <i>I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You</i>, was the first big hit of her career, cracking the top ten of the US pop charts for the very first time. The powerful blues wailer foreshadowed The Queen of Soul’s mastery of melding R&amp;B and pop into urgent hits, confirmed by her delivery of <em>Respect</em> straight after. </p> <p><b><i>2. '</i>Chain of Fools'</b></p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-5c4fnlftqt4" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/5C4FnlftQt4?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe> </div> <p><i>Chain of Fools</i>, written in 1953 by R&amp;B singer Don Covay,<i> </i>was a massive hit for Aretha, climbing to number two on the US pop chart and number one on the R&amp;B chart, also in 1967. In 1969, <em>Chain of Fools </em>won her a Grammy for Best Female R&amp;B Performance – a category that had only been introduced one year earlier in 1968 and won by Franklin for the first eight years running! </p> <p><b><i>3. '</i>Rock Steady'</b></p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-fgavl-m41le" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/fGavl_m41LE?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe> </div> <p>Only a few years later, in 1971, Aretha released her 18th studio album, <i>Young, Gifted and Black</i> with "a funky track about grooving to the music" called <i>Rock Steady.</i> The self-penned track came together in a Miami studio with a little help from her famous friends, including soul legend <strong>Donny Hathaway</strong> who played the organ and R&amp;B session star <strong>Dr. John</strong> on percussion.</p> <p><b><i>4. '</i>A Change is Gonna Come'</b></p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-amvcs5ttgce" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/amVCS5ttGcE?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe> </div> <p>Aretha made this <a href="https://www.ilikeyouroldstuff.com/news/rolling-stone-magazine-names-aretha-franklins-respect-the-greatest-song-in-history">Sam Cooke</a> original her own in 1967. Accompanying herself on piano, she introduces the song with a heartfelt mantra to Cooke, who died in 1964, saying, “There’s an old friend that I once heard say/ something that touched my heart/ And it began this way,” before delivering the song like tour de force.</p> <p><b><i>5. '</i>Think'</b></p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-vet6ahmq3-s" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/Vet6AHmq3_s?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe> </div> <p>1968 single, <i>Think</i> was a collaborative effort between Aretha and her then husband, producer Ted White. Originally appearing on her <i>Aretha Now </i>album, the song continued her hot streak on the charts, becoming her seventh top ten single in the U.S., and sixth to reach number one on the R&amp;B chart. </p> <p>Following an acrimonious split from White, Aretha re-recorded the song in 1980 for the <i>Blues Brothers </i>soundtrack and gave a stellar live performance in a now-legendary scene from the classic film (above).</p> <p><b><i>6. '</i>(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman'</b></p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-8jcfzrep1ng" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/8jCFzreP1ng?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe> </div> <p>Another career-defining single arriving from 1967! (<i>You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman </i>was co-written by songwriting great Carole King and her partner Gerry Goffin. It is one of Franklin’s signature songs, as empowered by its unapologetic vulnerability. Although she didn't write this one, as with anything in Aretha’s hands, she made it an anthem. </p> <p>The <i>ARETHA </i>collection features 81 newly remastered tracks, including alternate versions of classic hits, demos, rarities, and live tracks, like her stunning performance of <i>(You Make Me Feel) Like A Natural Woman </i>at The 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors in 2015. </p> <p><b>Aretha Franklin | ‘(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman’ [Kennedy Centre Awards, 2015]</b></p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-efiam5dzuds" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/efIAM5dzuDs?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe> </div> <p>Putting Franklin’s life and career into perspective, the collection is accompanied by liner notes written by Rochelle Riley, author and director of arts and culture for the City of Detroit, and David Nathan, a music journalist and soul historian who interviewed Franklin more times than any other living writer. <a href="https://store.warnermusic.com.au/artists/aretha-franklin" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">Get <i>ARETHA</i> on CD and vinyl, here. </a></p> <p> </p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-center"><a href="https://store.warnermusic.com.au/artists/aretha-franklin" rel=" noopener" target="_blank"><img alt="aretha cd" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="e3f48989-7593-42d7-b9ff-f2d29f4e58d1" height="309" loading="lazy" src="/sites/g/files/g2000009801/files/inline-images/aretha-cd.jpg" width="350" /></a> <figcaption><em>ARETHA</em></figcaption></figure> <h1 class="text-align-center"><a href="https://store.warnermusic.com.au/artists/aretha-franklin" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">GET ARETHA FRANKLIN ALBUMS, HERE. </a></h1> <p>Listen to <a href="spotify:playlist:37i9dQZF1DX6bJVMtDYJHx" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">Aretha Franklin</a> on Spotify:</p> <p><iframe allow="encrypted-media" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="380" width="300" data-src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/album/7lEOKZaOpqP70UYqdLPejG" class="optanon-category-C0003"></iframe></p> <p>Listen to <a href="https://music.apple.com/id/playlist/aretha-franklin-essentials/pl.26a6703ab0a243428c61ba40a9e9e0f5" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">Aretha Franklin</a> on Apple Music: </p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay *;

Unsurprisingly, it was a number one hit on charts around the globe, including the US Billboard Hot 100. </p> <p>For Franklin, it was the first time she had been at the top of the charts since <i>Respect </i>was at number one 20 years earlier. It was also a big year for Michael who had just stepped out as a solo pop force from the teen-dream duo Wham!. Their incredible duet also proved to be a Grammy-winning performance, with the pair taking home the 1987 Grammy Award for Best R&amp;B Performance by a Duo or Group. </p> <p>It may seem an unusual pairing, but in an interview with <a href="https://www.smoothradio.com/artists/george-michael/aretha-franklin-duet-knew-you-were-waiting-video/" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">Entertainment Weekly</a> in 2017, Aretha spoke about why she wanted to work with Michael, explaining that she actually was a fan of George’s vocals in Wham! "He had a very unique sound, very different from anything that was out there,” Franklin said. “When Clive [Davis] suggested we get together for I<i> Knew You Were Waitin</i>g, I was all ready. It reminded me of Jerry Wexler.”</p> <p>Relive the chart-topping with the official music video below!</p> <p><b>Aretha Franklin &amp; George Michael | ‘I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)’ </b></p> <div class="video-embed-field-provider-youtube"><iframe width="854" height="480" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" id="ytplayer-fdxzqjaa228" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/fDxzQJaA228?autoplay=0&amp;start=0&amp;rel=0&amp;enablejsapi=1"></iframe> </div> <p><i>ARETHA </i>is a collection featuring 81 newly remastered tracks, including alternate versions of classic hits, demos, rarities, and stunning live tracks. <a href="https://store.warnermusic.com.au/artists/aretha-franklin" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">Get <i>ARETHA</i> on CD and vinyl, here. </a></p> <p> </p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-center"><a href="https://store.warnermusic.com.au/artists/aretha-franklin" rel=" noopener" target="_blank"><img alt="aretha franklin" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="07ffc90f-0ae3-47ee-8934-294bd83a1874" height="309" loading="lazy" src="/sites/g/files/g2000009801/files/inline-images/aretha-cd_0.jpg" width="350" /></a> <figcaption><em>'ARETHA'</em></figcaption></figure> <h1 class="text-align-center"><a href="https://store.warnermusic.com.au/artists/aretha-franklin">GET ARETHA FRANKLIN ALBUMS, HERE. </a></h1> <p>Listen to <a href="spotify:playlist:37i9dQZF1DZ06evO4mP172" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">Aretha Franklin</a> on Spotify:</p> <p><iframe allow="encrypted-media" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="380" width="300" data-src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/playlist/37i9dQZF1DZ06evO4mP172" class="optanon-category-C0003"></iframe></p> <p>Listen to <a href="https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/aretha-franklin-essentials/pl.26a6703ab0a243428c61ba40a9e9e0f5" rel=" noopener" target="_blank">Aretha Franklin</a> on Apple Music: </p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay *;

It reached cult status and became a staple of late-night cinema, even slowly morphing into an audience-participation show in its regular screenings at the Valhalla Cinema, in Melbourne.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Directed by John Landis, and set in Chicago, it stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as "Joliet" Jake and Elwood Blues, characters developed from "The Blues Brothers" musical sketch on the NBC variety series Saturday Night Live. The film's screenplay was written by Aykroyd and Landis and includes musical numbers by R&amp;B, soul, and blues legends<strong> James Brown</strong>, <strong>Cab Calloway</strong>, <strong>Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, and John Lee Hooker.</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">Even with the comedy stripped away, the soundtrack to the cult-classic film still stands tall. When they’re not ceding the spotlight to musical guests, they stir blues, soul and rock ’n’ roll together with such unbridled energy, infectious enthusiasm and star-quality charisma that it’s impossible not to get caught up in the frenzy. </p> <p class="text-align-center"><a href="https://store.warnermusic.com.au/collections/various-artists/the-blues-brothers-blue-vinyl" target="_blank">Get the official soundtrack on limited edition blue vinyl, here.</a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" height="314" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/EHV0zs0kVGg" width="560"></iframe></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" height="314" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/qdbrIrFxas0" width="560"></iframe></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" height="314" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/Vet6AHmq3_s" width="560"></iframe></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" height="314" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/HnKfdDkbMno" width="560"></iframe></p> <p style="text-align: left;">You can check out some more songs from the movie on Spotify!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe frameborder="0" height="380" width="300" data-src="https://open.spotify.com/embed/album/4cO51KBYsdsbmSZleoNEGH" class="optanon-category-C0003"></iframe></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" height="630" src="/sites/g/files/g2000009801/files/tinymce_file__326e171ab3615f7cba897067b17ba65a5ba37933.jpeg" width="630" /></p> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tag-tier2 field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Tags Tier 2</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tags/80s-0" hreflang="en">80s</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/tags/soundtrack-2" hreflang="en">soundtrack</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-slu field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Slug URL</div> <div class="field__item">the-blues-brothers</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-author-name field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Author Name</div> <div class="field__item">I Like Your Old Staff Writer </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-isfeaturednews field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Show in Header Carousel</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item">Off</div> </div> </div> Thu, 08 Oct 2020 23:43:00 +0000 Site Factory admin 220986 at https://www.ilikeyouroldstuff.com https://www.ilikeyouroldstuff.com/news/the-blues-brothers#comments Aretha Franklin’s Biggest Hits In Australia https://www.ilikeyouroldstuff.com/news/aretha-franklins-biggest-hits-in-australia <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Aretha Franklin’s Biggest Hits In Australia</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Site Factory admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 07/27/2020 - 11:26</span> <div class="field field--name-field-newsid field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">News id</div> <div class="field__item">74961</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-blog-thumbnail field--type-image field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Blog Thumbnail</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <img loading="lazy" src="/sites/g/files/g2000009801/files/2020-07/aretha-franklin-1980.jpg" width="1000" height="620" alt="Aretha Franklin’s Biggest Hits In Australia" title="Aretha Franklin’s Biggest Hits In Australia" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Body</div> <div class="field__item"> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="charset=utf-8" /><figure role="group" class="align-center"><img alt="aretha franklin, 1980" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="8fe5a852-6de3-4c90-acbf-f0423e08ff85" src="/sites/g/files/g2000009801/files/aretha-franklin-1980.jpg" /><figcaption><em>Aretha Franklin, 1980.

Aretha’s version of "Spanish Harlem" was one of three remakes included as new songs on her first greatest hits album for Atlantic.</p> <p class="MsoNoSpacing"><b>5.

The song was written by Annie Lennon and Dave Stewart, who first approached Tina Turner to appear on it with them. When she declined, Aretha agreed to record the track with the duo, with the odd lyrical adjustment.</p> <p class="MsoNoSpacing"><b>4.

As well as flipping the gender of the lyrics, Aretha’s version added the now iconic “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” and “sock it to me” elements.</p> <p class="MsoNoSpacing"><b>3.

Recorded after Aretha and her backing singers gave an impromptu performance of the song at rehearsals for the <i>Aretha Now</i> album, "I Say A Little Prayer" was relegated to B-side status in the US, but ended up becoming as successful there as A-side "The House That Jack Built."</p> <p class="MsoNoSpacing"><b>2.

The turnaround was due to the pop stylings of "Freeway Of Love," which was co-written and produced by Narada Michael Walden, also responsible for a large chunk of Whitney Houston’s ’80s output, and featured an on-trend saxophone solo by Clarence Clemons.</p> <p class="MsoNoSpacing"><b>1.

Now, we get to see Hudson stepping into the Queen of Soul's shoes for the very first time in the film's first trailer. The long-awaited film follows Franklin’s life from her early years singing in her father’s church to becoming one of the most legendary musicians of all time – receiving 18 Grammy Awards and 44 nominations during her prolific career.</p> <p>The teaser trailer features cuts of Hudson performing an explosive rendition of the film’s title track, being bombarded with advice and learning to defend herself with a signature elegance, famously telling music exec, Jerry Wexler (played by Marc Maron) to call her “Ms Franklin” – all in 75 action-packed seconds.
