I guess I'd describe it as sort of psychedelic soul, the uplifting feeling I get when the chorus kicks in is truley awesome...no need for drugs! This is one of the most beautiful life afirming songs I've heard... 16 Aug 06 ·ambassador: Minnie Riperton's voice is stellar as always, but what really shines, for me, on this song is the HUGE arrangement, courtesy of maestro Charles Stepney. Check out the earlier version of the song w/o lyrics on Ramsey Lewis' album, Maiden Voyage, also featuring Stepney arrangements.

Practically clausterphobic in its arrangment, it's still spacious and brings you this heightened state, as though something is just about to happen. The lyrics sound as though they should be sentimental, nostalgic fare but they sound almost tormented and full of hyper anger. Like the Tasmanian Devil in love.
