Odis Redding wrote a song called Respect. Though the "Queen" kind of stole it and recorded it first.

Songs about respect?

There are many aspects to "respect" but in my "youth"
there was only one that mattered.

This song was as powerful as TNT.

Back in my day this tune's lyrics hit the point
dead-on regarding popular implications of "respect"
insofar as "youth" was concerned.

Tonight you're mine completely,
You give your love so sweetly,
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes,
But "Will You Love Me Tomorrow".

Shirelles, circa very early 60's, way-way pre-Beatles

On Motown, I'm pretty sure.

Swap "love" for "respect" and you have the complete
cultural package that dominated the amorous aspects
of my youth.

To be, or not to be, . . . . "knockedup, what else"!

We had no "AIDS" and acted as though immune to clap.

But the word "late" scared the crap out of us.

If you think about it, Redding's work could be a sort
of unfortunate sequel to this one.

That's actually a Carole King song, BobP. On her album Tapestry.

Dylan's song "Dignity" is about respect, but I think it's too heavy and symbolic for the occasion you have in mind.

"Will You Love Me Tomorrow" was both a Carol King song and a Shirelles song. Carol King wrote it in the early 1960's when she and Gerry Goffin were writing so many hit songs in the legendary Brill Building. It was given to the Shirelles, who recorded it and got it on the charts. Later (circa 1971, I think), Carol started recording and performing her own songs, and she decided to include her own version of this song on Tapestry, which was one of the landmark albums of the day -- it seemed like everyone in the world had a copy of that record.

There was a song from the early 1970's called "Respect Yourself". Don't remember much about it, it was sung by a woman, and sounded like it was from the Philadelphia soul genre. Anybody remember more than I do about this one?

Si Khan's "It's Not Just What You're Born With" (File name BORNWITH) is in the DigiTrad. Strong song, if you think your audience will get it.

How old are the youths?

"I Am a Promise" is used with young children. (couldn't find it on the 'net due to copyright)

A Don Maclean song, called "Respect", is more about the ppl that he _doesn't_ respect, specifically the American oligarchy, and the reason he doesn't respect them is that they don't respect others.

"Babe it ain't no lie" for being on the other end of disrespect.

Graham.

LR Mole - Si Kahn's song is "What You Do With What You've Got". I agree it is a great song about respect and asks some good questions..."what good are two strong legs if you only run away - what good is the finest voice if you've nothing good to say? - what good is strength and muscle if you only push and shove - what's the use of two good ears if you can't hear those you love?..." ah, that Si sure knows how to write 'em.

To the Questioner: is there a particular aspect of respect you are looking for? That's a big category.

I don't know any but by God Mudcat could use one right now. I have never seen so much hate and bickering going on in one place . Too many good people here to engage in such conduct.

how about "what the world needs now is love sweet love"

Krishna by Colonial Cousins
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KG9Sbg_gkxA&feature=related

Bombay-based producer and musician Leslie Lewis and classically trained Ghazal singer Hariharan in 1996 teamed up on a fusion album, where Hariharan's Eastern vocals met Leslie's love of the West. It was a very decent album and afterward the two men split and are now threatening a comeback later this year.
Off their debut album, one song that really struck a chord on the music scene was 'Krishna' – a song that honestly paints the repercussions of racial divide and lack of tolerance and respect for religions.

Sung essentially in English with classical raags fused, the lyrics ring true to our times more than ever before.
"Come back as Jesus/Come back and save the world/Bless all the future of every body and girl/Come back as Rama/Forgive us for what we've done/Come back as Allah/Come Back as anyone/Religion is the reason the world is breaking up into pieces/Colour of the people keeps us locked in hate/Please release us/So come down and help us/Save all the little ones/They need a teacher/And you are the only one/We can rely on to build a better world/Whether its for children or for anyone."

Leslie and Hariharan wrote a fantastic song and it is a must-hear for everyone.

We're a little late here so far as the OP's request, but, going way back, Robert Burns "A Man's A Man For A' That" still fits tha theme well.

Will There Be Any Travellers In Heaven, which is in the Forum but not the DT, contains the verse:

Will the gorgio be friends with the Gypsy?
Will there be lots of money to spare?
And will there be respect for my children
In the place that we go to up there?

Any song about one who is good at his/her work, from John Henry to Champion At Keeping Them Rolling, exemplifies an important aspect of respect [& self=respect, an important part of it].
