What is this? This is the first in a series of 12 cross-over posts from my other blog, Prof deBock Dance Party commemorating the top songs of the 1980’s.
What makes you an expert? Nothing.
Are these the best songs of the 1980’s? Not necessarily. These songs best represent the 1980’s for me.
Artist: Kool and the Gang
Comment: This song is now iconic. Last time I saw it performed was a few years ago as part of the half-time of the Orange Bowl. That was also the last time the Iowa Hawkeyes were in the Orange Bowl! But I didn’t choose this song because it is iconic, rather I chose this song because it seemed the perfect musical transition from the 1970’s and the 1980’s!
