Chain Of Fools Aretha Franklin Free Audio Download
“Chain of Fools” is about discovering your partner has been unfaithful.
One of five Top 10 hits Aretha scored in 1967, it rose to #2.
The following year, this song wound up on Aretha’s album ‘Lady Soul’—at #2, it’s her biggest LP, tied with the classic ‘I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You.’
This song was penned by songwriter Don Covay when he was a kid—later, he intended it for Otis Redding, but producer Jerry Wexler passed the track to Aretha.
In 1968, Aretha disclosed her most treasured tracks to Record Mirror: “Two of my favourite songs incidentally are ‘Rock-a-Bye,’ which was on Columbia, and ‘Chain of Fools.’”
This song won Best Female R&B Vocal Performance at the Grammys in 1969.
Aretha told the Independent about interacting with Barack Obama before he was President: “You know what he said to me? ‘You look good.’ I was already beginning to lose weight. It was an affirmation of all my efforts. And then he sang ‘Chain of Fools,’ and I thought, ‘He’s really hip. Real down, and real up.’ And he’s got a walk like nobody else.”
