Que Aretha Franklin seja considerada a melhor cantora de sempre (it's America, guys...) só poderá surpreender os duros de ouvido. Que numa lista de melhores cantores esteja Dylan já poderá ser mais controverso.

E, no entanto, porém...

The beauty of the singer's voice touches us in a place that's as personal as the place from which that voice has issued. If one of the weird things about singers is the ecstasy of surrender they inspire, another weird thing is the debunking response a singer can arouse once we've recovered our senses. It's as if they've fooled us into loving them, diddled our hard-wiring, located a vulnerability we thought we'd long ago armored over. Falling in love with a singer is like being a teenager every time it happens.
