The Doobie Brothers' first hit, this was written by the band's lead vocalist Tom Johnston, who also played guitar on the track. He told us about this song: "It was all based around this somewhat Utopian view of the world. The idea was that music would lift man up to a higher plane, and that world leaders, if they were able to sit down on some big grassy knoll where the sun was shining and hear music - such as the type I was playing - would figure out that everybody had more in common than they had not in common, and it was certainly. Just basically that music would make everything better. And of course I've since kind of realized it doesn't work that wa. Johnston has seen the music industry change dramatically - and for the worse - since he formed The Doobie Brothers in 1970.
