Unlike nearly everyone else on this thread, I don't really have a problem with your arrangement. True, it's a little "standard issue" for PJ, but even "standard issue" is better than anyone else's crap on a good day. What bugs me (and maybe others, I dunno) is the cuts to the lyrics. You seem to think a soul song can't handle trauma, or perhaps that the lyrics are too dark for the arrangement. You're welcome to your opinion, but cutting the second half of every verse decimates the song's message. The whole point of the song is that these people, pursuing whatever struck their fancy, made messes -- sometimes catastrophic messes -- of their lives (I believe the gentleman in the first verse whose mother couldn't keep him out of trouble wound up dead in the gutter because of his drug dealing, while the fella in the second wound up with HIV from all that lovin' that his body couldn't handle, if memory serves), and that is the reason you don't go "chasing waterfalls." (You also lose a section of what used to be the rap verse, but with all the cutting, I can't even tell if that has an impact or not.) Is it a downer? Yeah. But if you lose that half of those verses, the whole moral of the story is gone. Now, because the lyrics to any popular song tend to go unnoticed to some extent due to the arrangement, I think this editing exercise is the real problem the people complaining about other elements of the cover have, and they just don't realize it (lyrics have a funny way of sneaking up on you). I like the arrangement, and I'm not mad. I'm just... disappointed.
