-1 for the damned kid who submitted this not knowing the difference between the Supremes and Aretha Franklin. HEY NINETEEN!

Yeah kid. I still prefer the original Otis Redding (1966) and Supremes (1967) to the Aretha Franklin (1967) version that came out later that year. I've never cared for more overt gospel music.

Oh, I'm sure the submitter knows his Aretha Franklin - why, he probably thinks "Rescue Me" is her best song!

It takes a lot for me to one-star a video with bait-ball footage, by the way. But this is a pretty boring cover, to begin with.

Aretha deserves more...something...than this.

Ms. Franklin has since demonstrated that she doesn't particularly deserve the commonplace adulation. The Otis Redding song is an interesting font, here its exploited by British musicians with no particular interest in soul music, and in (in my long held opinion) an interesting tangent.

The tagging was an honest 2 AM mistake. It now correctly credits the composer.

I love this song because through a simple vocal mannerism, it completely inverts the lyric's meaning, from one of assertion and confidence to a cry of desperation.

I love Aretha Franklin.

And I love Liz Frazier.

This is some stank, though.
