5 Songs For The End of The Week

“Cultivate your own aesthetic and your own universe. Create your own universe and share it with people you respect and love. “

-André Leon Talley

Many greats have covered this gospel classic. LaVern Baker’s interpretation builds on Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s version, transforming it into a foundational Rock N’Roll record.

In the pantheon of great Aretha songs, this one doesn’t get mentioned enough. Do yourself a favor and build a playlist around it now. 

The transformation is never in doubt.

This cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed” is a dazzling one of a kind interpretation.

A sweet meditation on the power of nature to help us see ourselves and our circumstances more clearly.
