A song to start your week : Aretha Franklin – Rocksteady

A classic soul tune to start your week:

Despite an Aretha Franklin greatest hits album being one of the first CDs I owned, somehow the genius of this song passed me by until recent years. Whilst I love most of her work, it can sometimes be a little smooth for my liking. Rocksteady is a different beast altogehter though. Funky, passionate and with the insistent backing vocals that are an essential ingredient of any of my favourite soul songs, I can’t think of a better way to start your week than this.
