VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Wild Cherry – ‘Play That Funky Music’

September 23, 2017

There is absolutely no way that you’ll be able to sit still through this.

Over 40 years since the initial release, Wild Cherry’s ability to target the feet and hips and hit them squarely on remains undiminished.

Formed in Steubenville, Ohio, Wild Cherry had been playing together for six years before hitting paydirt with this dance floor smash. Hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Top 100 in September 1976, the single was a planet-shagging success that shifted 2.5m copies in the US alone.

Listening to it now, you can see exactly why.
