What is it about this song?

The subject matter is hardly the happiest, and the feel of it is rather melancholic, but there is just something about it, the little changes in tempo after the chorus, the funky feeling underneath it all, that just makes me love it, and regard it as my favourite song by Sly and the Family Stone.

Was it a year ago that I read an article about Sly Stone preparing to come out of obscurity and hiding to face the world with some new music? I have heard nothing more since then, which is hardly surprising. Maybe it was two years ago that I read it.
