Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin’s discography is one so vast and so iconic that it will forever live on through our speakers. With her four-octave vocal range, no one (and we mean no one) could sing a love song quite the way Ms. Franklin could. Her music penetrated our souls and left us feeling the sheer essence of every word she belted out, especially when it came to matters of the heart.

With the news of her passing, at age 76, we’re taking a moment to celebrate some of the greatest love songs in her catalog.

From “Call Me” to “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” here are six amazing love songs from the icon’s timeless discography.
