    "I feel for you" purely because it had a massive impact on me when I heard it on the radio and saw the video as a 14 year old.

    "Ain't Nobody" is simply a genius song with an amazing bassline. But there are quite a few of them. Also has a touch of the wedding disco about it now, which is no bad thing, but...

    Upstairs neighbours blasting out ain't nobody. Good choice.

    Listened to Ain't Nobody the other night and I still think I Feel Fur You is better.

    Ain't Nobody wins every time.

    Feel For You contains the line "makes me wanna sing", which is an immediate disqualification. You're already singing about how much you like this person, Chaka.

    Can you imagine a great poem that contains the line "makes me want to write a poem"?

    That's a good point, actually.

    Grasping at straws!

    However, bringing up the lyrics does show that Luka is onto something. The vocal part isn't all that important in Feel Fur You. It's the funky ass drums and bassline above everything else. And the synth blasts and the harmonica, and the silly 'chaka-chaka-chaka' stuff. That's where all the energy is, and Chaka is just the icing on top of the gigantic tottering wedding cake. So I'll concede that Ain't Nobody is a better SONG (you'd rather hear it on accoustic guitar, if a gun was to your head), but I Feel Fur You is the record I'd save from the incoming tide on my desert island.

    You know your onions so I'll assume I'm wrong in thinking a great deal of poetry is about writing poetry, and specifically about writing poems about people you have the horn for.

    Has to be feel for you. It has the splintered, stuttery intro, the scratch cuts, all the ruff with the smooth - introduces a level of tension into the 80's synth funk perfection.

    Don't worry, I'm a Feel Fur You die hard, Corps.
