I got to the first "Let Freedom Ring" and had to turn it off, and I usually have liked Aretha in the past. That was just absolutely horrible...

And I agree with Zod. Why do some singers feel the need to put their own spin on songs that just shouldn't be messed with? It's not like anyone is going to go, "Oh wow, that was so much better than how it was originally written!" or anything. Stop screwing with the program!

she american idolized it, added notes, runs, words


The song is bigger than you, as unlikely as that sounds. Just sing it as it was written.

She probably Forgot the words. I like the "amercan idolized" it. I have always called it Christina Aguilera Syndrome.

I think there was a pissed off cat in her hat judging by the sound.
