Sunday Soundcheck: I Don’t Want Nobody Always Sittin’ Around Me And My Man

Aretha Franklin.

Do I really need to say anything more than that name on this week’s version of Sunday Soundcheck?  She’s the Queen of Soul and there are no comparisons or substitutions that can be made to adequately do her any justice.

Aretha is where I go when I really want to relax into my womanhood and remember just what confidence, power, and assertion sounds like in it’s musical form. There’s not a song that doesn’t speak to me in a deep way, from “Dr. Feelgood”, a song about her obsession and dedication to her man. A man that has her heart and sensuality so much in his possession that she wants to keep him to herself wholly—he’s the remedy to her heart and soul.

Whoo! Who can’t identify with feeling that type of passion, infatuation, or whatever you wish to call it, for the object of their affection?

Aretha keeps it real in her music and her voice is something sent straight from the heavens—no extra production needed and auto-tune need not apply.

Ladies and Gentleman, Ms. Aretha Franklin:

“Dr. Feelgood (Love is a Serious Business)

“A Rose is Still A Rose” ft. Lauryn Hill
