|From: Knock on Wood; Year: 1979; Genre: Disco|
I remember hearing this one a lot growing up, well into the '80s and beyond. Other than the pounding and bumping beat the two other aspects that really make this song so great is Amii Stewart's commanding vocals and the way they used a slightly modified version of Steve Cropper's original "Money Lick" intro all the way the through the song, which is a massive hook.
