    Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards (from the Chic band) originally offered this song to Aretha Franklin. What would this sound like in the Aretha version? Well, this is my version.

    That's great!
    I love it when someone picks a tune to do that I never would have thought to cover ... and I love that Diana record (outstanding guitar and production all around).

    I can see your house from here.
    Very nice! I covered this in a recent band.
    Our female singer didn't like the lyrics much (kind of misogynist) but I loved playing the rhythm.
