16 August 2018 - Aretha Franklin - Repsect

Less a cover and more a reimagination of an Otis Redding classic, this song was unbelievably  Aretha's only Billboard Hot 100 #1 hit.  More importantly, it turned a song about a guy begging his girl for respect into a feminist anthem. 

Music really lost a legend in Aretha Franklin today, but her songs will endure for generations to come.
