They Say I'm Different. They say I’m different cause I’m a piece of sugar cane Sweet to the core that’s why I got rhythm My great grandma didn’t like the foxtrot Nah, instead she’d spit her snuff and boogie to Elmore James. They say I’m different cause I eat chitlins I can’t help it I was born & raised on’em, that’s right Every mornin’ I’d have to slop the hogs And they’d be gettin’ off humpin’ to John Lee Hooker. And that’s why they say I’m different And that’s why you think I’m strange. I’m talkin bout T-Bone Walker (I get my) Muddy Waters Leadbelly Sonny Terry Brownie Mcghee Son House and Freddie King. Bessie Smith (x2) Oh Hey Bo Diddley have you heard. That’s why they say I’m different That’s why they say I’m strange That’s why they say I’m funky Little Richard wow you sure showed ‘em you sure could sing Alright alright.

In all honesty I can imagine people being put off by the heavily sexual content of the lyrics and by the unusual singing style Betty Davis adopts so maybe this album isn't for everyone. However I love it. I love the unusual turns of phrase that pepper the songs. I love the way she seems to chew all of the words and savour them before spitting them out for us. I love the deep funk of the backing.
