This is one of my favorite Jackson 5 songs so I decided to do a cover version of and attempt to play all the parts, one man band style. Doing young the young Michael Jackson vocal in it was particularly challenging, but it was a lot of fun!
This song was written by: Berry Gordy, Freddie Perren, Alphonzo Mizell and Deke Richards

Here's some quick tech info for anyone interested:
I used the Roland TD-6 as a controller only. The drum sounds you're hearing are coming from FXPansion's BFD2 software. Those drum samples were triggered by my hitting the pads.
The fuzz guitar effect is from the Line 6 Pod Farm plug in. The other guitars are running through Native Instruments Guitar Rig 4. The bass is direct. The Piano comes from the Miroslav Philharmonik Library.
I did a lot of hard stere panning to get this to sound close to the original, so if one of your speakers is off or broken, you will only hear half the song.
