I know the song is catchy.
But Donny Hathaway is not going to help anybody with their drug and alcohol problem.
No amount of soul music is going to get that monkey off your back.
Everyone's all dancing around going "No, No, No" like it's all good. I mean: this woman obviously has a problem. And staying at home with Ray Charles doesn't seem to be helping the situation.
I know her willful defiance sung in that other-worldly soul-filled voice of hers really gets you in the mood to party - but as you're getting your swerve on - This poor woman is running around the streets with her shirt off all drug-addled and crazy-eyed.
Getting her picture all in the Daily News.
We all need to stop encouraging her destructive behavior.
So maybe the next time "They" try and make her go to rehab she will be like: "yes, I think maybe I have a problem. I want to get better."
