I’m sure you’ll remember this song from the soundtrack of any film that’s set during the 70s. I’ll always associate with John C. Reilly showing Don Cheadle a card trick in Boogie Nights. I guess that’s appropriate since it’s Boogie Shoes and Boogie Nights. “Don’t you worry about the evil spirits?” Cheadle asks Reilly shortly before Reilly runs off to help Dirk Diggler launch his musical career.
Apparently, this band was started in a record store. The man who would eventually be known as KC worked at the store and I guess the band was made up with either his customers or his co-workers. Either way, they came together to form The Sunshine Band and they spread happiness and cheer all throughout the cocaine-heavy 70s. They’re still doing it, playing the nostalgia circuit. Good for them. Disco is forever.
(That said, the best band to form in a record store remains the Empire Records band. SUGAR HIGH!)
This is another one of those videos that was originally a performance for a television show. In this case, the show was American Bandstand.
Dance and enjoy!
