The Love is Gone

I was listening to "Until You Come Back to Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)" by Aretha Franklin today. This song, written by Clarence Paul, Morris Broadnax and Stevie Wonder is listed by the Rolling Stones as music that was important to them. And I can see that, it's a great song, and Franklin's vocals give you the idea of the heartache she feels after her lover leaves her.

But it's an interesting sign of the times. What, back in the day, was considered a model of love and devotion to someone, would now be a one-way ticket to a restraining order.
