Awesome Old Song of the Week: "People Everyday" by Arrested Development

In 1992 the hip hop band Arrested Development released their debut (and only hit) album 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of....  It's first and most successful single was "Tennessee;" with "Mr. Wendal" probably being the song that the group is next best known for.  My favorite though was "People Everyday" (a remake of Sly & the Family Stone's 1969 "Everyday People").  I heard it on the radio today for the first time in forever, and 20+ years since I bought the cassette I still know all the words.

Something I wasn't aware of at the time however, the female lead vocals on "Tennessee" and "People Everyday" were performed by Dionne Farris, who later had a major pop hit in 1995 called "I Know."
