  • Chinny from LincsThe vocals are sampled from 'He'll roll your burdens away' by Banks Brothers. The Shining Light Gospel Choir do not exist, or if they do, they are not the sample source. They are a fake credit. an 'alias' for the sample. Moby has done this more than once in the past, attributing fake artist credits rather than the actual sample source.
  • H. from LondonWho will open what doors?
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandWhen I was a kid, I used to think the "These open doors" line said "Bleed like a nun" - I dunno why...
  • Dave from Melbourne, AustraliaI love this song. It's quite sad. Makes me wanna cry nearly. Very soulful. Mob is a great artist.
  • Yos from Santo Domingo, Dominican RepublicShow's how much LA WEEKLY knows about music.
