She was one of my favorite singers. I'm doing an Aretha Franklin marathon on Spotify right now.

Crap.

Her rendition of "Think" off the BLUES BROTHERS album is epic.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs
