  • This is one of the most famous R&B bedroom songs. The Isley's were known for a funk and soul sound, but this is similar to the work of Barry White and later-era Marvin Gaye ("Sexual Healing" was an influence on this song) in creating the sound of seduction. Ronald Isley sang lead. >>

  • John from Nashville, TnWhile recording this song, tensions mounted between the older brothers (Ronald, Rudolph, Kelly) and the younger brothers (Ernie, Marvin, and Chris) over the financial and musical direction of this group. Therefore, the two camps split after recording this song.
