Wild Cherry was a funk/rock band which had a great success during 1976 with the funk song "Play That Funky Music." Details siehe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Cherry_(band))
This song is rambunctious! The opening guitar line was clear and vibrant and the rest that followed made everyone get up and dance! Funky is the key word here, the rock approach to funk made this one a classic. Everything came together to create a smash hit that sounds as fresh today as it did then. A summer song that evokes a lot of memories too.
