Program Notes

Now small groups and groups with incomplete or nontraditional instrumentation can show respect for the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. This solid arrangement of one of her signature hits sounds great with flexible instrumentation or smaller groups.

- Program Note by publisher


Respect is a song originally released by American recording artist Otis Redding in 1965. The song became a 1967 hit and signature song for soul icon Aretha Franklin. The music in the two versions is significantly different, and through a few changes in the lyrics, the stories told by the songs have a different flavor. Redding's version is a plea from a desperate man, who will give his woman anything she wants. He won't care if she does him wrong, as long as he gets his due respect when he brings money home. However, Franklin's version is a declaration from a strong, confident woman, who knows that she has everything her man wants. She never does him wrong, and demands his "respect". Franklin's version adds the "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" chorus and the backup singers' refrain of "Sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me...".

Franklin's interpretation was a landmark for the feminist movement, and is often considered one of the best songs of the R&B era.
