The Death List
Aretha had a nice mid-80’s comeback with hits like ‘Freeway of Love’ and ‘Who’s Zoomin’ Who?’

I wasn’t really old enough to enjoy her during the 60’s and early 70’s.

She was a pioneer and broke through a ton of barriers.

Hope she was able to keep some of the money she earned and crooked producers didn’t fleece her.

I liked her in the Blues brothers one of her "cool" moments among many.
You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

I loved Aretha's voice and attitude when she performed, and admired all she did for civil rights and gender equality.

She was the best, a gentle badass. Rest in peace.

She sure was and respected far & wide. I've read so many lovely tributes to her the past 24 hrs. or so. She was beloved.

Her granddaughter posted a black & white video taken of her in March. She sounded as glorious as ever but she was very, very thin. I heard she had pancreatic cancer :(
