I hadn't heard the Raphael Saadiq cover so thanks for that. It's good but the original is the clear winner here.

Wait a minute... Do you mean Ray, Goodman and Brown as Ray Parker, Jr?  

Are you sayin' that Ray Parker Jr was formally from the Moments???


Oh, and it's a hard choice between Stacy and The Moments... ;D

No, Ray Parker Jr. was NOT in the Moments (or Ray, Goodman and Brown).  Overlapping eras, different men.
