    A bonafide classic - Aretha at her best.

    I love everything about this song.

    Very early on in her career, Mariah also covered this in a live setting...



    Incredible.

    Listen to what The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra did to it:



    The original is perfection, but they bettered it somehow - cannot big the album enough, what they did with her work is really quite something.
