Old School Friday
This week's meme is remakes and originals. I watched some of the Ted Haggard media blitz earlier and between wanting to gag, I was angry that yet another woman feels so tied to retaining the title of MRS to a wretched man that the whole idea of feminism seems even more of a fallacy to me. I immediately thought of storms and chaos, then the song "Bridge Over Troubled Water" came to mind. The original is a Simon & Garfunkel classic, but Aretha Franklin takes it in an entirely different direction. I also love Eva Cassidy's version. Happy Friday!
