A throwaway track that ended up being a pretty big hit.
The song had been recorded several times over the years, by everyone from Steve Miller Band to Meat Loaf. But Jackson had the biggest hit with it, with its driving beat capitalizing on the success of “Chattahoochee.”
In retrospect, it might be the least essential Jackson hit of its era. Fun to listen to, but not worth making extra effort to seek out.
