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
