The Beeb did a tribute programme on her last night.

The footage of Obama's inauguration had me in tears; little as I like much about US policy I did weep when they finally elected a black president, and to have Aretha singing at that time was just so apt.

What a voice she had!

Chain of Fools and Respect: two of the first songs on vinyl I ever bought. How time has passed!
