Written by Al Green, producer Willie Mitchell and guitarist Mabon “Teenie” Hodges, this was the last of six #1 R&B hits for Green. The song finds him burning with desire, which is typical – Green always runs hot – but here, he’s full of fire for life and all that’s worth living: music, dancing, having fun. Most of Green’s songs in this vein deal with lovemaking, but here it’s just one part of a bigger picture.
