However, one song would have to wait until seasoned adulthood for me to fully appreciate. `Seasoned,' in the sense of having been on both the winning and losing sides of love. "Good To Me As I Am To You," lyrically, is of the identical mind-set of "Respect," but this time Miss Franklin authored her own. It doesn't try to be any dance-jam like her signature hit, and in that sense, it comes off perhaps even more startling. Leslie Gore's "You Don't Own Me," was one thing, this was something ELSE. It's astonishing to realize how daring a thing it was then for a female singer, to lay it on the line like this: "Starting today, tomorrow, and forever more - If YOU can't find it in your heart to DO for ME, then, baby, just don't darken my front door!" On this song, Lady Soul wonders out loud to herself and her lover, if he'd be willing to lend her any portion of his last dollar, as quickly as she'd turn over her last dime to HIM.Read more ›
I like all of the songs here. There are no duds - no filler at all. My favorites here are "Chain of Fools," "Money Won't Change You," "Niki Hoeky," and "Come Back Baby." This is a great CD. A lot of people buy her greatest hits CDs, but I prefer her albums. In addition to "Lady Soul," I also strongly recommend that you get "I Never Loved a Man The Way I Love You."
