Woman's Gotta Have It

by

Bobby Womack



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Songwriter Darryl Carter's inspiration for this song was a woman he knew who was about to get rid of her unresponsive husband. He and Linda Womack originally penned this with Jackie Wilson in mind. Bobby Womack recorded it in 1972 taking it to #60 in the US Pop chart.
Taylor Hicks covered this for his 2009 album The Distance with his fellow American Idol alumnus Elliott Yamin joining him on vocals. Hicks told the Birmingham News about his cover: "I fell in love with Bobby Womack and that particular song. To a certain degree, there's a call-and-response on the original version, and I think both Elliott and I have a natural, soulful sound to our voices. There's no better pure vibrato sound than Elliott Yamin's way."
Other artists to record this song include James Taylor, The Neville Brothers, K-Ci and Wendy Matthews.
