Each week the songs in the Classic Top 30 are picked and voted on by you.




Chart Notes:

With her death coming during the latter part of the week, the number of votes for songs by Aretha Franklin were not as many as one would expect. Normally, after a major stars death, one song usually stands out, from all the ones voted for, but this time there were only a few votes, and they all were for different songs.

All the records that votes came in for this week are listed, no matter what position they were listed at.

My song pick this week is of course, by Aretha. Lennon/McCartney's "Let It Be". I heard her version on radio on the west coast, months before The Beatles version was released.

Also, if you get a chance, watch the Aretha Live at the Fillmore concert (link at the bottom of the page). A great show. If you can't watch it all, jump to the performance of Spirit in the Dark, with Ray Charles. Ir starts around 47:47. Amazing
