Ah!..I see we have all the 'Old Skool' getting all nostalgic over EWF..now that's no suprise to me!..Lol.I love all of EWF's material but I am gonna buck the trend here as I think Phatts & Small's dance version is a great floor filler and I actually think it is a better version to dance to than the original. So on that, I will go with Phatts & Small..
...BTW...thanks Jay for the Danny Krivit mix....does that dude ever phuck a mix up or what!

Now I know Marvin's version was a BIGGER hit in these parts, going #1 for 7 consecutive weeks; but I will go with the original artist on this one;
GLADYS KNIGHT & THE PIPS
I was just 11 years old when it came out, but already I was feeling something I've never felt---->THE BEAT!!!

Also I love the Motown Remix Version on Glady's Version!!!

I'm goin' with the Gladys Knight version because although Marvin's rendition was Great, it was really over-played. I also think Gladys had a brilliant soulful voice! :)

How do you seperate Gladys and Marvin..a near impossible task!
What can I say about Gladys that has not already been said before, she is in my Top 3 best female singers of all time with Rochelle Fleming and Anita Baker..
Now we have Marvin who happens to be in Top 3 best male singers of all time along with Sam Cooke and Otis Redding...
I can only seperate these two tracks by dancefloor response and so I would have to go with Gladys as it had more danceability..so that's my choice for today!

TRAMMPS gets my vote. (99% every time)

I wonder why they call that the EXTENDED MIX?????---
cause it's the same as the original--no difference at all.
