Wednesday’s Theme Music

We saw Amazing Grace, the documentary about Aretha Franklin and the two sessions used to record the live gospel album, Amazing Grace (1968). Watching her sing up-close was a powerful experience. Her talent still moves us, and technology allows us to experience it again and again. Besides her, Rev. James Cleveland, and the Southern California Community Choir, with Alexander Hamilton directing, gave mesmerizing performances.

After seeing the documentary, many Aretha Franklin sangs joined my mental music stream this week. Eventually I became stuck on “Think” from The Blues Brothers (1980).

  1. Wasn’t it amazing? What totally blew me away was as the camera panned around as she began to sing, you see Mick Jagger get up, clap and it’s almost as he’s feeling the gospel of the song in his soul.

    1. We had a full house here when we watched it. That surprised me because it’s been playing for several weeks. But each time they showed Jagger, the audience talked about it. Some people clapped when he stood and clapped.
