What is the meaning to the song Respect by Aretha Franklin?

User Avatar
She is saying "If you treat me right, I'll treat you right." That's a good definition of respect. Her point was simple. Respect her and she will respect you. Treat people how you want to be treated. Basically she's saying that "As long as you do right by me I'll make you a happy man." treat any one who you mee with even more respect than they give you. it proves that you are the better man. ____________________________________________________________ When Aretha Franklin covered this Otis Redding song, she put a bit of a sexual spin to it. "What you want, baby I got it." Phrases such as "Sock it to me" and "Whip it to me" had sexual connotations in the 60's. She sang the song as a woman who goes out and works all day to support her man and she expects a little "attention" when she comes home. So "Respect" can be anything the singer expects in return as part of a relationship.MP

"Rescue Me" is actually performed by Fontella Bass, and yes, she does sound amazingly similar to Aretha Franklin. However, Aretha did perform a song called "Deliver Me" which used the same music for a Pizza Hut commercial.
