Impact Series, Songs That Changed The World - presents Aretha Franklin: Respect.
Rare indeed is the artist whose music can bridge race, color, creed, and gender and have an equal impact on each. This was a song that was used by the women who were beginning to imagine the feminist movement. It was a song that simply said, “The time for change has come.”
Respect also reflected a shift in the tone of the Civil Rights Movement. It introduced a new and bolder phase in the struggle that was now going to the streets with a different approach. So, when Aretha Franklin came along and sang, “Give me some respect and here is why I deserve it” it caused women to start swinging banners. It was the soundtrack of the times.
The emotion, the sound and the memories makes Respect as significant a record now as it was in 1967.
