  / KT Tunstall                       /  The meaning of the song is in the
 / I Want You Back (Jackson 5 cover) /  title, simple as it is. This song was
/___________________________________/  Jackson 5's breakthrough single back in
                                      1969, and it was written by some of the
songwriters working for the newly-started record company Motown, on which it was
also released. Motown was the first record company ever to be owned by African
American's and it was therefore obvious that five black boys were chosen to
front the label. Back then Jackson 5 were still just figureheads for the company
and hadn't really any influence on their career yet. It was all yet a concept
band just the way popstars are branded today, where an entire company really is
behind everything.
...and then the lovely Kate Tunstall does this beautiful cover, love her ;)
