Aside from the fact that this is a solid, classy recording with a lively, uncluttered arrangement, a fine vocal turn by Mina, an infectious groove (the bongos are a nice, earthy touch) and a killer acoustic-guitar solo, I admire the kind and generous spirit of the lyrics--the desire to understand and respond to another person's unfortunate situation. The words convey sympathy and hope. Taken together, the music and lyrics--especially in the chorus--brought to my mind some of the unvarnished streetwise poetry music that Gil Scott-Heron recorded during the '70s. It's that concern for the welfare of down-and-out others that I most always find touching and laudable. And that's what I hear most clearly and beautifully in this song.
