“…If you disrespect anybody you run into,
How in the world do you think anybody’s s’posed to respect you?...”
Luther Ingram and Mack Rice created the soul classic "Respect Yourself"", It became a major R&B / Pop hit in 1971 for The Staple Singers. The song's main message is that respect must begin with the individual. Many acts have covered the song over the years, including The Kane Gang and Bruce Willis.
