Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’ Became A Rallying Cry For Musicians Seeking Royalties

It’s been played more than 70 million times, and Franklin saw exactly none of the royalties because it was written by Otis Redding. “Every time the song is played on the radio, Mr. Redding’s estate — he died in a 1967 plane crash — has been paid.” That’s a rallying cry to make copyright law work both for writers and for artists.

“Mustang Sally” and the rapid pace of change in the Sixties

Image courtesy OldCarBrochures. I wanted a Ford Mustang almost more than anything when it was introduced in late spring of 1964. It was coolness personified. The little “pony car” had dual exhausts, a small but powerful V-8, and looked like nothing else on the road. My college roommate, Art (left), and I, along with “Mac,” were ready to drive to Miami in Art’s “Beetle” at summer’s end in 1964. I fantasized the VW was a Mustang the entire 1,500-mile trip.
