Aretha Franklin – One Step

I loved Moonlight which premiered at the LFF this week and the music in it is gorgeous, though mostly background. One of the climactic scenes takes place in a diner and on the jukebox is playing this wonderful Aretha Franklin track. I’d only previously heard it as a sample on Mos Def’s Ms Fat Booty, but here it is in slightly crackly form bing performed by a young and angelic Aretha. It’s One Step Ahead, and you can’t hear a better tune anywhere this week (except maybe the one that comes right after it in Moonlight, which I’ll save for another day…).
