The Greatest Grooves Of R&B And Soul

“Respect” By Aretha Franklin
“Give it to me when you get home!” This song’s overt sexuality used the word “respect” as a euphemism for sex and was clearly a feminist anthem about women’s sexual equality. Or maybe it was just about being randy. Surprisingly, it was written by Otis Redding, who made a fortune on its royalties. The Muscle Shoals rhythm section on this track features Gene Chrisman on drums.
