And to be fair, it's not as wild a combo as it sounds on the surface--there's always been a little R&B in the Stones, and all Aretha does is coax that little bit out and push it front and center....and you know that no matter what she sings, Aretha is going to sing it into submission. There are some moments here where she starts growling that lyrics which sends chills down your spine.
Great artists should never cover great songs for Whoopi Goldberg movies. Seriously. That this turned out as good as it did is a credit to the artists.
Now let's never talk about the time when Whoopi Goldberg was the actress you asked to be in your movie when your star backed out (the film Jumping Jack Flash was written as a vehicle for the then-inexplicably popular Shelly Long; Other films Whoopi acted as stand-in for were Fatal Beauty--originally written for Cher--and, most gob-stopping of all, Burglar, meant for Bruce Willis) again.
