New Attitude (Patti LaBelle)
Patti LaBelle’s first solo hit on the US Hot 100 was one of two songs she recorded for the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack. It only reached #17 but its cultural impact and longevity has been greater than many far bigger hits of the same time, possibly because of its infectious, upbeat message about self-improvement.
I’m feelin’ good from my head to my shoes
Know where I’m goin’ and I know what to do
I tidied it up my point of view
I got a new attitude
Fun fact: Neither this nor her other Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack song – Stir It Up – appeared on Patti’s next album, 1985’s Patti.
