This is an awesome version – though boring video of this song… My husband is surprised that I like this song at all (from the feminist perspective). “you’ll need a man” is not very me. “I can’t think of this song without thinking of Uma Therman OD’ing in Pulp Fiction”, is also my husband’s smarty pants review. So true. But it’s 1972 and he’s just hot. Panty remover. No woman needs a man but if I had been a middle aged womyn in the 70s.. yum yum Neil.
