REVIEWS
Average points: 4.3 (Reviews: 37)
****
Das Original von 1983 ... solider Durchschnitt für die Band.
****
Dem kann ich bedenkenlos zustimmen. Auch so ein eher unbekannter und weniger erfolgreicher Song klang aber immer noch gut und sehr funky. Nicht schlecht, aber auch kein Knaller.
*****
sehr gut
***
...eher langweilig...
****
Hit # 7 von schon 20 Hits in NL biß 2005 !... anfang 1984 war es am platz # 11 ins Hitparade...
****
ø Platte von Kool & The Gang aus 1983 !!! Stand 6 Wochen in die Holländische Top 40 !!! Zusammen mit "Joanna" !!!
******
Der Song hat sehr schöne Harmonien. Jedoch gefällt mir die Eunuchen Stimme nicht besonders, was aber kein Abzug gibt.
****
solide - das passt am besten..
****
etwas fad
****
Ein durchschnittlicher schnellerer Song von "In The Heart". Genau 4*.
****
Gehobenes Mittelmaß...
****
ganz ordentlicher sound
******
Gute Laune-Musik.
******
Klasse, wunderbarer Refrain.
****
durchschnittlicher Funktitel aus den 80er – 4*…im Januar 1984 auf #15 in UK…
****
prima nummer van Kool & The Gang
*****
Heel sterk dansnummer van Kool & The Gang uit het jaar 1983. Eén van mijn favorieten van deze formatie, samen met "Ladies' night".
****
Toffe danshit van Kool & The Gang uit het hitjaar 1983.
*****
Auch nach mittlerweile 29 Jahren noch ein gutes Werk, das einfach immer funktioniert. Musik wie diese hat Wiedererkennungswert und Stil. Absolut gut!
****
Aardig.
***
Ordinär låt i mina öron...
****
Geht "straight" nach vorne, ganz guter Song.
*****
...auch einer ihrer vielen, erfrischenden, funky Danctitel - sehr schön gesungen...
****
Sie machten richtig eingängigen Schlager-Funk in ihrer Endphase - so auch hier ...
****
Eine gefällige Nummer aus den 80ern.
****
Solide, gehört aber sicher nicht zu ihren stärksten Songs!
****
blijft mooi
****
Een van de betere songs in de bekende Kool & the Gang stijl
*****
Prima single met een dubbele A-kant (die net zo goed was)
****
Aangename muziek van Kool & The Gang.
****
Zweifellos ein Knaller, aber ich hab ihn zu oft gehört.
******
Fait partie de ma playlist - Maakt deel uit van mijn playlist
*****
Konden ook tegen de mid-80's duidelijk nog funky zijn, die van Kool & The Gang. Deelde z'n A-kant met Joanna en krijgt van mij een duidelijke voorkeur daarboven - kwestie van smaak wellicht.
****

So ein typischer 4er Stern Song.
****
4+. Netter Mitläufer einer Truppe, die ich mochte und mag.
***
Nice disco/funk song with a catchy and fun vibe. The impressive falsetto makes this one of the harder choruses to sing to. Similar style to Earth, Wind & Fire.
#15 peak UK, 1983-84.
⌜ᴰᴬ⌝ Ꮲk.⌠#46⌡
****
Hat eigentlich eine ganz schöne Melodie.
