The premiere song restylist of our (ok my mom's) generation. Nobody can touch Aretha Franklin.
My favorite gypsy rock-r-lady who writes songs that tear your insides out - Stevie Nicks.
In honor of her Rock & Roll Hall of Fame eligibility enjoy a little Laura Nyro.

It's the antithesis of magical thinking. The exercises in this book not only help you think about all of the things you want but help you focus on achieving them. That focus helps dispel the negativity, doubts and questions that bubble up to the surface. It's more than mere positive thinking - it's a reinforcement of reordered thinking.
- Gratitude - for where we are right now
- Release - getting rid of unproductive mentalities
- Acknowledge & Ask - recognizing progress and getting help
- Be & Believe - authenticity of self and knowing this will work
- Share - paying it forward
