You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman


My brother got an iPod in 2002 and came over to show it to me.  It was blue and boxy and I had never seen anything like it. He was super excited about it and he said it could hold thousands of songs. I was skeptical.

To demonstrate, we went out to his Audi in the driveway, hooked it up with the speakers, and turned on Aretha Franklin’s Natural Woman.  It was my first time hearing the song and my brother sort of ruined it when he sang along. But It was one of those surreal moments when I was holding this weird tech gizmo from the future and  listening to this new, old song from decades ago and it gave me a rush I won’t forget.

What a legend. R-e-s-p-e-c-t. We’ll miss you Aretha.
