"I think it's one of James Brown's best songs ever, and it's certainly one of his most powerful slow songs. There's a lot of drama going on here. James was begging and pleading when he sang the lyrics. It's a very moving performance.
"Sammy Lowe, the arranger, told me he wanted what he called an 'old-fashioned triplet' thing on the hi-hat. I tried to play it straight, but I didn't like it, so I gave it more of a dance, a bit of a flair, and it really worked. As for the rest of it, my goal was to stay on top of the beat, keep focused and drive the energy. Even though it's a ballad, it had to pump."
