    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.

    Introduced to this song through the Mariah cover. Playing both versions a lot now.

    Love everything about this song too.

    Listen to what The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra did to it:
