By the 5th time I listened to it, I was trying to figure out the connection between Otis's song and Aretha Franklin's song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DZ3_obMXwU&NR=1 (take a listen to hers) and I did. I found a wikipedia article (always dependable you know) about how Otis wrote his song in 1965 and Aretha wrote her song in 1967 as a woman's response to that song. I'm proud of myself for finding this link. The words are slightly different. :) Yay for music education (I'm all about it).
