“Love Me Some ……Retha!”

Hay You! How’s your weekend? Well, its been a wonderful weekend for me so far….. been chilling like a villain, listening to some amazing songs by the legend Aretha Franklin. I tell you Aretha’s songs can be down right gritty, I always say! Goes to the bottom of your core, soul, heart and back around the top of your head, ha…ha… I grew up on some of her music and songs that transcend all dimensions. And there are just some songs only Aretha knows how to sing. I have always loved, and still do and adore her music and those great duets with George Michael, George Benson and Micheal McDonald make you want to swoon and fall in love again.

I know for a fact that it’s not only for myself but a lot of woman can sometimes identify with a lot of her songs.

Just like I love it when she sings…..

Oh Me Oh My, I’m A Fool For You Baby” and be honest….. tell me who has not been somebody’s fool at one time or another.

I love it when she sings “Wonderful” and “Jump To It” both are such up beat and amazing songs, that make you want to get up and just dance all night from her tunes! 

And “Day Dreaming” & “Until You Come Back To Me” are again more of my favorites, I do declare I just love, love, love me some Retha……

Her life has been filled in general with many ups and downs and there are a lot of people so, so jealous of her, hating on her and it’s a living shame- that wonderful, beautiful and amazing woman.  And then the disappointments and joys with the men she had in her life. Oh man some of the things she has been thru makes you wonder how she still keeps her head up, but she is one amazing lady, classy, top choice, beautiful, talented woman. And yet and still she always comes out smelling like a rose no matter what…..Retha! Retha! Aretha is such an AMAZING FEMALE ARTIST!

So…. say hay you! Stop in for a while…..

come go with me and take a listen and see why they call her the Queen of Soul.

So these are some of my favorites (thanks to YouTube)……I tell you Aretha’s my # 1 best girl!

Let Retha tell it, “love” is some serious business!
