Reddy-WomanHelen Reddy – “I Am Woman” – 1972

I remember singing this song to someone and they didn’t believe me that the opening lyrics actually were “I am woman, hear me roar.” Which… I guess, makes Helen Reddy the original Katy Perry. This was Reddy’s first #1 hit and her first really big hit. It’s one of her two best-known songs, with “Delta Dawn.”
