Wild Cherry was a one-hit wonder group- but it was a big one which still gets a lot of air play today. These guys were a local band- but I am probably in a minority but I’ve always found it an annoying song. I give it a D+ on a local boys discount. Vanilla Ice would cover it a couple decades later and have a #4 hit with it- his version gets an F.
