If you ask me, this is the best Kool & The Gang song. It’s jazzy, funky, and soulful all at the same time – and it sounds like something that could’ve been released in 1983. It’s completely relaxing in a throwback kind of way and that synth is so smooth. This was the highest charting single from this album, peaking at #35.
