    You are joking right? Its Herbie Hancock's Rock It, hardly an obscure tune! :o :D

    ELECTROFUNK is a subsidiary of HIP HOP MUSIC AND CULTURE, don't you forget it suckaz...

    Thank you!!! I just did a little swan dive..

    I knew it was well known but in my defence i'm 38 which meant I was a wee bit young to be buying records in 1982-83. To be on honest I don't even remember pirate radio stations until I was about 10 by which time it would have been considered 'OLD' and therefore not Fresssh

    Anyway thank you I haven't heard it for a least 28 years!!!!!!
