Show Some Respect is a very autobiographical song, because it was especially written for Tina. It is the last single from the Private Dancer album in North America and Australia, instead of I Can’t Stand The Rain in Europe. Tina promoted the song on Australian and Japanese TV and performed it live at some of her concert tours. A live version is available on the album Live In Europe from 1988. The live b-side song „Let’s Pretend We’re Married“ was written by Prince, recorded in Chicago on August 2, 1984.

A rough rocker punctuated by a light funk guitar „Show Some Respect“ should gain even more respect for Turner, whose superlative rock vocal sends this cut to uncharted levels of Turner resonance. A forceful tempo and Turner’s relentless energy makes Show Some Respect prime rock dance material, destined for certain popularity in the clubs as well as on rock and CHR radio.
