Album: The StylisticsReleased: 1971Charted:
Like many of The Stylistics' hits, this song was written by Linda Creed and Thom Bell. Creed wrote the lyrics to many Soul classics, including The Greatest Love Of All
, which was a huge hit for Whitney Houston shortly before Creed died from cancer. Bell is a producer who was a key figure in the Philadelphia Soul sound, working with acts like The Spinners and The O'Jays.
In this song, the singer is crazy in love. So much so that he can't formulate real words to express who he feels, and just strings together some G-rated expressions.
Prince recorded this on his 1996 album Emancipation. Aaron Neville and the Sugababes also covered the song, and Mariah Carey sampled it for her 2005 song "Stay The Night."
