What can I say? I graduated from HS and went on the college in the middle of the age of disco.
Play that Funky Music was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the R&B charts the same year. "Play That Funky Music" hit #1 on the charts in 1976 and ended up in the #5 slot for the top 100 songs of 1976. It is also listed at #73 of the top rock songs of all time.
This music is classified as funk-rock, a cross between disco and rock, and probably the best example of this that there is.
Yeah, "Play that funky music, white boy!"
5 stars, mainly for nostalgia and staying power.
