“Smooth” is a very well written and executed song. Overplayed to hell, but that’s not the song’s fault.

I remember this spawned the trend of taking has been acts and pairing them with hip modern acts. Run DMC had a pretty abysmal album with Fred Durst and Third Eye Blind sometime after. I don’t think DMC is even on the album since his voice is all fucked. No songs as good as Smooth on that one.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I found out recently this song was co-written by a guy who used to be in one of my favorite bands, Groove Collective.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.
