Anita Baker cover Second version by Aretha[edit]

I can't find any evidence of this recording. I think there may be some confusion with her 1988 recording of "You Belong To Me", which has appeared on at least two compilations since then. It is a very similar McDonald-Doobie song.Slithymatt 01:14, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

I have it on mp3 - I can email it to you if you wish. But despite months of looking, I can't for the life of me track down a source! It's very frustrating. Perhaps I should send it to you - maybe it's not Anita Baker? (Sure sounds like her though ... ) Pdfpdf 02:10, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Actually, that is definitely the Aretha Franklin version from "Aretha" (1980). You may have heard another Aretha version that compares less favorably. Check out AMG to hear the clip; it's the very same recording: http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:fzfyxqu5ldhe
But thanks for the clip. That is a good version! Slithymatt

It never occurred to me that Aretha had done two different versions! Pdfpdf 02:22, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Lyrics[edit]

Just writing-in to say that I've been hearing this song for over thirty years now, and I have no idea what the lyrics are. They are extremely difficult to make-out. I'd like to know if others have the same experience, and if this is worthy of mention in the article proper. Sstteevvee (talk) 17:01, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Interestingly, when I was in 6th grade (the year the song came out), a teacher gathered a bunch of us kids, put us in a room, and played this song. Afterwards, he asked if any of us could understand what was being sung. No-one could. Although after reading the lyrics, they're clear as day. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.84.225.10 (talk) 20:01, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

There needs to be some further proof of Michael Jackson's contribution to this song than heresay. I have Fred Bronson's book of number ones and it does not mention Michael Jackson. ```` — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jimmbonn (talkcontribs) 04:07, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
