Respect

This week's karaoke classic is 'Respect' by the Wolfgang Press.


"This song is so beautiful it moves me to tears whenever I hear it," says 23-year-old airline stewardess Gwennap Pit from Par in Cornwall.

"That crashing drum machine, raucous synthesised trumpet and Michael Allen's choirboy vocals get me every time."




Respect was originally recorded by Otis Redding in 1965 and two years later by Aretha Franklin.

The Wolfgang Press version, embedded here on the Rake & Herald from theCoverHeaven's excellent YouTube channel, comes from 1985's The Legendary Wolfgang Press and Other Tall Stories and features Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser on backing vocals.

Listen to it a few times.

At first, it'll probably make you wince.

By the third or fourth play, you'll accept no other.

Fact.
