Erasure – A Little Respect (HMI Redux)

Erasure have announced the release of a brand new ver­sion of their top 5 single, "A Little Respect – HMI Redux". A col­our­ful new video for the track, dir­ec­ted by film­maker Jason Stein, was filmed in New York City and fea­tures Erasure lead sing­er Andy Bell, HMI youth and many oth­er not­able passers-by.

"A Little Respect – HMI Redux" fea­tures a youth chor­us from The Hetrick-Martin Institute wear­ing the YOU ARE LOVED t‑shirts which are avail­able exclus­ively at Leon & Lulu (www.leonandlulu.com) with pro­ceeds to bene­fit HMI.

Proceeds from the track will be donated to The Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School, in New York, and the True Colors Fund. The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the old­est and largest LGBTQ youth ser­vices organ­iz­a­tion in the United States, provides a safe and sup­port­ive envir­on­ment to all young people – regard­less of their sexu­al ori­ent­a­tion or gender iden­tity so that they can achieve their full poten­tial. HMI also provides insti­tu­tion­al train­ing around the world through their HMI to Go program.

Lyrics:

I try to discover
A little some­thing to make me sweeter
Oh baby refrain from break­ing my heart
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason
Why you're mak­ing me work so hard

That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please give a little respect to me

And if I should falter
Would you open your arms out to me
We can make love not war
And live at peace in our hearts
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
What reli­gion or reason
Could drive a man to for­sake his lover

Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please give a little respect to me

I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason
You know you're mak­ing me work so hard

That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please give a little respect to me

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please give a little respect to me
