Some of the most clever lyrics I've ever heard, particularly for an R&B/dance/gospel crossover song (hard to cover all three fields and satisfy fans of each): "I want to have dinner with Gershwin/I want to watch Rembrandt sketch/I wanna talk theory with Curie/Impossible I guess/I want to sing hymns with Mahalia/and when the day is through/I want to tell you about it/I want to get next to You." To boot, there are a couple of hooks from Gershwin standards thrown in to act as bridges between verse/(lyrical) bridges/chorus and back to verse... Brilliant piece of songwriting; too bad this wasn't as big as any of Summer's Stock, Aitken & Waterman-produced outings...
