I love the parts when the music changes and you see the feet stomping- it cracks me up every time. This is one of Stevie's better songs in my opinion. I still don't understand why people consider him a genius. To me, he has a few really good songs, like this one, here and there, but I have a few of his most acclaimed albums, Innervisions, Talking Book, and Music Of My Mind, and most of the songs, like "Superwoman", for example, has some very strange chords and the progression of the songs can be quite tedious, not to mention that sometimes they are 7 or 8 minutes long. It's nice that he has his own unique sound, but it is a bit overplayed and it's not that pleasing to my ears for some reason. "Superstition" and "Higher Ground" are examples of good songs from these albums, so he proves with them that he can do it funky, upbeat, classy and just plain right. I just don't understand why he doesn't write these kind of songs while a lot of them are so difficult to listen to and he seems to be over-ambitious with them, using way too many chords.
"Part-Time Lover" is my favorite of his, but even his own unofficial website claims that the album "In Square Circle" isn't very good: "A disappointment after a long wait."
This song is kinda fun- at least it's not as tedious as most of his other songs. Dizzy Gillespie is truly scary in this video- doesn't make you want to go out and play the trumpet.
