Before I started this blog, I posted about songs from old AT40s on Facebook, January-July 2017. I’ll be moving them here over time. This entry has been edited a little from the original.
Everybody work your body!
I actually liked this quite a bit at the time. The “ooah-ooah” chant was quite in vogue: soon afterward, Heatwave’s “The Grooveline” and Foxy’s “Get Off” used it to notable effect, as well. Nice clarinet/trumpet solos, too!
When this song debuted the previous week, I think it was the first time in the rock era that two acts whose (last) name started with Z were in the top 40 at the same time (“Werewolves of London” is also around). “Let’s All Chant” is at #37 and would get only one position higher.
