"Call Me" is a song recorded and written by Americanmarker Soul singer Aretha Franklin. The song was co-produced by Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd and Arif Mardin. Franklin came up with the idea for the song after she saw a young couple engaged in deep conversation on New York's Park Avenue. Before they parted, Franklin heard them say to each other, "I love you, call me". With the exception of Franklin on piano, musical backing for "Call Me" was handled by members of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. "Call Me" was released as a single in January of 1970 from Aretha's "This Girl's in Love with You" album and became another hit for her, spending two weeks at number one on the US R&B Singles chart while reaching number thirteen on the Pop chart. .

Cover versions

Diana Ross' rendition of the song for her 1971 album "Everything Is Everything" was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Female R&B Vocal Category. In 1991, R&B singer Phil Perry recorded a version of this song for his album, The Heart of the Man. It also reached number one on the Hot R&B Singles Chart.
