Today’s forgotten oldie was requested by a listener. The song is “I Am Woman” by Helen Reddy and it went to #1 on the Hot 100 in 1972. It’s a song that men seem to hate, and women love. The song was obviously big with feminists and served as something of an anthem for NOW. It was also the first#1 for an Australian artist and won a grammy award for best female performance. Despite being covered by dozens of artists and used on several commercials, today the song is another forgotten oldie.
