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.
