"Respect" is a song written and originally released by Stax recording artist Otis Redding in 1965. The song became a 1967 hit and signature song for R&B singer Aretha Franklin. Kelly Clarkson sang a cover of the song for the soundtrack of the Miramax film Ella Enchanted. The song was also parodied in a 1997 commercial for Recess that ran on ABC, with the chorus changed to "R-E-C-E-S-S" and other lyrics changed to be about the show.
