Hey Nineteen

That’s ‘Retha Franklin 

She don’t remember 

The Queen of Souls 

-Hey Nineteen, Steely Dan 

Could it be? Could it be, even in 1981, the titular nineteen-year-old girl in Steely Dan’s song couldn’t remember Aretha Franklin? (Titular, btw, means in the title-get your mind out the gutter.)

‘Retha, the undisputed Queen of Soul, went to meet Elvis August 16, same exact day the King left the building. Preacher’s kid, mother at twelve, she won eighteen Grammys, sold over 75 million records, and was number one on the Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time – all without any Facebook likes.

Yeah, Nineteen.

There was a time people were famous for something besides being famous. A Rolling Stone writer called her  a force from heaven…. a gift from God. Hey, Nineteen-if you really don’t remember the Queen, go listen to her, right now. You’ll enrich your body, mind, and spirit, and learn what happens when those three things come together in a song.

Soul.
