Two for Tuesday: Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin spent 25 weeks in the Top Ten during my high school days, with five songs. Strangely, none of those songs reached #1.

“Spanish Harlem” was a hit for her in August 1971. It spent six weeks in the top ten, peaking at #2.

“Until You Come Back To Me (That’s What I’m Gonna Do)” also spent six weeks in the top ten, starting in February 1974. It peaked at #3.

Back in March 2013, I dedicated the month to people who share my birthday, March 25, and Ms. Franklin is one of them. You can see what I talked about there.

  1. She is such a great singer and among the greats of all time great singers barring her horrible rendition years back of Nessum Dorma when Pavoratti couldn’t be there:)

  3. I was never an Aretha fan–just don’t care for that style of singing–but unlike Birgit I enjoyed her version of “Nessum Dorma”. Hearing her sing that gave me a different perspective and new respect for her singing.
