For this song, Seger was inspired by Jane Fonda, and her famous strut in the movie Barbarella. (thanks, Stephanie - Denver, CO)

In 1989-1990 NWA/WCW, the manager Woman (Nancy Daus-Sullivan Benoit- RIP) used this as her entrance music.

I seriously doubt the song has anything to do with Jane Fonda or the Vietnam War. That war was long over in 1980 when Seger released the song. I think its just a song about a dancer--a frequent Seger subject.

One of Bob Seger's best songs.

Her Strut is a recycled version of Fire Down Below and Jane Fonda is a recycled Tokyo Rose. Great website,BTW

This song is actually about Jane Fonda's strut while walking up to the podium to talk about the Vietnam War at a function in Washington D.C. Seger saw her on TV. Sure wish they would get their facts straight on this Website.

I love Bob Seger, but I turn the station when this song comes on, because it was inspired by Jane Fonda and I don't approve of her actions during the Vietnam War. How Disrespectful of our troops.

I'm all for honoring young Jane Fonda's strut, but this song is annoying.

any Bob Seger song is a great song......

The chorus features a clever play on words: "They do respect her, but they love to watch her strut." In the fine tradition of mondegreens, this line is often quoted as "They do respect her butt/They love to watch her strut."

Bridesmaids, Reservoir Dogs, Willy Wonka. Just a few of the flicks where characters discuss specific songs, sometimes as a prelude to murder.

Michael tells the story of "Send Me On My Way," and explains why some of the words in the song don't have a literal meaning.

When Judd Apatow needed under-appreciated rockers for his Knocked Up sequel, he immediately thought of Parker, who just happened to be getting his band The Rumour back together.
