Let's hear it for the girls

Today is International Women's Day. 

So for all the ladies all over the world here is a track for you sung by Chaka Khan (no, not that track). 

And, in these days of equality, men can listen as well!.

This track is from the Rufusized album. All of Rufus' 70s albums are essential listening in my book. Chaka Khan is well known to many I'm sure, but maybe not so well known is the lady who wrote this song - Lomi (Lalomie) Washburn. She also wrote another track on Rufusized - "Your Smile" - which is just beautiful.  

Rufus feat. Chaka Khan - I'm A Woman (I'm A Backbone) 1974 

Buy Rufusized

Great album! Great funky track! Great antidote to Helen Reddy's "I Am Woman," which I recall was playing ad nauseam on the radio at the time. Agreed. "Your Smile" is a beauty.

Thanks for the comment Ben.
We need to keep the Rufus flag flying!
