I went with I Say A Little Prayer on the basis that Respect would be too obvious, but both songs are glorious.

Through this survivor, and digging I've done outside of it, I've discovered a huge amount of music that I absolutely love. She is well worth a listen, a brilliant artist with a phenomenal catalogue.
