Chris from San Francisco, CaNot only it's two chords only as mentionned earlier by John, but I notice that the bass line is played on one key only the whole song through. Fantastic song.
John from Nashville, TnTwo chords (C and G) and the truth. What a song!
Jack from Brookline, MaI LOVE how Dave highlights the KEYWORD to his comment how: Aressted "ATTEMPTED" to RE-CONVEY the same message...haha! They tried, but pretty much FAILED MISERABLY at it! The songs are completely incomparable..no question to which song was extremely more influential, better and more culturaly important. And also, it is pretty SAD that Rolling Stone put this all the way UP at 145 out of 500...In my mind it should be in the top 10 at LEAST. Everyone in the world should listen to this song at least ONCE, and I mean REALLY listen to it. In my mind, it is certainly one of the most IMPORTANT songs ever recorded.
Dave from Cardiff, WalesIn 1992, R&B act Arrested Development scored a UK #2 hit with "People Everyday", which was based on the original by Sly Stone and attempted to re-convey the same message
Andy from Arlington, VaThis is #145 on the Rolling Stone top 500 songs.
Max from New York, United Statesvery cool song, from a now under raited band
