"(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman," Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin's songs created movements that defined a generation and championed feminist causes. If "Respect" was the battle cry for women to be seen and heard, the gutsy and soulful ballad "Natural Woman" was its flipside. A heartfelt ode about how a man's love can bolster a woman's power and heart, it's underlying message vividly and only embodies the Queen of Soul.
