Show Some Respect

.

I MADE A RESOLUTION
AND A PLAN TO DO MY WORK
BUT I NEED YOU TO MAKE IT WORK
YOU'VE GOT TO READ THE MESSAGE
UNDERSTAND WHAT'S ON MY MIND
CAUSE NOT TO SEE WOULD BE A CRIME
AND WE COULD LOOSE IT ANYTIME

[CHORUS]
WE'VE GOT TO SHOW SOME RESPECT
WE'VE GOT TO LEARN TO PROTECT
DON'T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED I KNOW
THAT IF YOU WANT TO STAY CLOSE
WE'VE GOT TO SHOW SOME RESPECT

BUT I BELIEVE IN WORKING
THEN I BELIEVE IN A LITTLE HELP
CAUSE I'M NOT LIGHT UNTO MYSELF
WITHOUT A THING OF VALUE
WHY SETTLE FOR SECOND BEST
WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S UP AHEAD
WE CAN'T LET OURSELVES FORGET

[CHORUS]

FOR THE THINGS THAT I LOVE ABOUT YOU
FROM THE WOMAN THAT YOU SEE INSIDE
DON'T LET IT WALK OUT THE DOOR
LOVE FOLLOWS EVERY TIME

While not released as a single in Europe, it found moderate success in the US and minor success in Canada. The B-side to "Show Some Respect" is a live cover of Prince's song "Let's Pretend We're Married".

"Let's Stay Together". THIS is the song that made me kneel at Tina's throne. I didn't recall Al Green's version until years after Tina's. I was awestruck when I first heard it on the radio and I still listen to it regularly to this day. For me, as a solo artist, this is Tina's best, most aggressive vocal.

Love this picture, I love when an artist can take a song and make it feel like it was made for their album era with the garments of that energy

Let's Stay Together
Let me say that since
Since we've been together
Loving you forever
Is all I need
Let me be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue
Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad
I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is alright with me
You make me feel so brand new
I want to spend my whole life with you
Let me say that since
Since we've been together
Loving you forever
Is all I need
Let me be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue
Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad
Good or bad, happy or sad
Why, oh tell me, why do people break up
Turn around and make up
I just came to see
You'd never do that to me, would you baby?
Cause being around you is all I see
So baby let's we all stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad
Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad
Ever need to chase after me baby
Let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Good or bad, happy or sad
Good or bad, happy or sad
Let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Good or bad, happy or sad

1983 - Let's stay together 7 Inch Single

"Let’s Stay Together" is a single from Tina Turner's album "Private Dancer".
It’s a cover version of Al Green. Al Green released the song in 1971 for the album "Let’s Stay Together". The song was written by Al Green, Willie Mitchell and Al Jackson Jr.

Tina’s career was hanging by a thread from 76-83. Her previous solo albums flopped and the record labels didn’t want to work with her. She was considered too old or they still held her responsible for her working with Ike. Tina’s live shows were always a success. She was mostly on the road and entertaining people from cabaret shows to rock shows. However her manager Roger Davies didn’t gave up on Tina when he heard that she was abandoned again by the record label.

Roger called Martin and Greg of Heaven 17 again after they worked together on the cover version "Ball Of Confusion". He asked if they were interested in writing songs for Tina or if they had any other ideas. However they told Roger, that in general they didn’t write songs for other artists, and certainly not for Tina. Not that they didn’t like her, but they adored her too much. She was a legend in their eyes and they weren’t confident at all to write songs for Tina. Roger and Tina were already staying in London, and the Heaven 17 member came up with the idea to cover another song they surely would love to hear Tina sing. They also knew Tina wanted rock songs but they also said she was an amazing soul vocalist and if she would be interested covering a soul song. Soul is Tina!! They’ve asked if she had any soul idols and Tina came quickly up with a list of soul performers. Sam Cooke, Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding. How about Al Green’s "Let’s Stay Together"? Tina immediately jumped at the idea. Tina hadn’t trouble recording the song, and they used the first take. They were stunned. Here’s a video of Tina and Heaven 17 live at The Tube in England.

The song became a huge hit in Europe and even climbed up in The Billboard charts in the USA. "Let’s Stay Together" was the comeback single for The Queen. Things finally went in the right direction for Tina.
Later on there was a meeting with Capitol and David Bowie. They were at a dinner party for releasing Bowie’s new album. The company asked if Bowie had any plans tonight because they wanted to invite Bowie.
He said "No, I won’t be able to make it tonight. I’m going to see my favourite singer tonight. "Oh well’’ they said. "Who is this favourite singer?’’ Bowie said "Tina Turner’’.
They were surprised because they just dropped her. However the company decided to come along with Bowie to see Tina performing live. They already noticed that Tina had a hit record on both sides of the ocean and immediately re-signed her. They also put the pressure on Tina because they wanted an album and gave her a deadline of a few weeks. Tina often thanked Bowie for helping her. Tina’s career came in movement because of Bowie. The Queen was back!!!

Tina performed "Let’s Stay Together" in multiple shows. Solid Gold, Banana’s and Na Sowas are a few examples of them. "Let’s Stay Together" never left her live shows as well. Although she made changes every now and then, it always was an incredible moment when audiences sang along with The Queen. She performed the song from 1983-2009. Half the original recorded version and the second half of her career as an unplugged version. Tina received The Kennedy Center Honouree in 2005 and Al Green, the original singer of the song tributed the song to Tina during her honouree. He always loved her version of the song.
