The bass line was used in Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation, obviously this is the superior song, but that was pretty cool too.

sometimes you just need to grow up and be an adult and issue the respect to the artists that they deserve...in s t e a d of taking stupid liberties. Just remember how you feel when someone twists your words....

If you can sit still when this song comes on you're ill or dead. I almost killed an office chair once the funky bass took me over so well. I've always counted Sly and The Family Stone as one of my top 10 All time bands.

I love this song - always have, but since my 3-yr old has watched Shrek over-n-over, well - I now visualize Puss-n-Boots and Donkey when I hear this song!!!

This song reminds me of Superstition by Stevie Wonder because of the bass line.
