Show Some Respect is the last single from the Private Dancer album in North America and Australia, instead of I Can’t Stand The Rain in Europe. The song is very autobiographical, because it was especially written for Tina. „Let’s Pretend We’re Married“ from the b-side was written by Prince and recorded in Chicago on August 2, 1984. The live music video was taken from the Private Dancer Tour home video, recorded March 1985 in Birmingham. Tina performed the song live at her Private Dancer Tour - a live version is available on the album Live In Europe from 1988.

Released March 1985 on the Capitol label on 7“ & 12“ vinyl, Show Some Respect reached #37 in America. The single was not released in Europe.
