    The Broncos finished the season losing 2 out their last 3 games so they 'only' had a 12-4 record and where a wildcard team. They had a +188 point differential and were the best team in the AFC.

    They should have played Grand Funk 24/7 in Afghanistan. LOUD. That would shake up the tribes. Lead off with with we are an AMERICAN BAND. LOUD. bin laden would have moved to Pakistan quicker.

    This is one of the numerous feel-good songs from the 70’s and one of the best songs of 1974. My #1 GF favorite tied with "Bad Time". Many memories attached to this masterpiece. Blows the Little Eva version out of the water, leaving it far behind in the dust! Released on February 23, 1974, reaching # 1 on May 4

      Yes, me and my stereo were relegated to the garage. Some how my dad always ended up there with me once I started to play this song and Iron Butterfly. Come to think of it, never did see him walk out with the philips screwdriver he was always looking for. Miss you dad, you were and are a good man.

    "A little bit of rythym and alot of soul."Indeed! It's easy to see how the Funk busted many pop charts in the 70's isn't it? When I first heard this back in the day, I didn't know that it was a cover version. But this interpretation leaves all the others in the dust in my opinion. Let's bring the 70's and 80's back.😀

    Back in the 90's my parents owned a trailer in a trailer park. There was a hall there that held dances however, they always got this older guy to run them who played old school stuff that none of the kids had heard of. This song and Red Red Wine by UB40 was all us youngins lived for. Will always remind me of those good times.

      Personally I don't have a favorite version. The Little Eva version does have a rockin' sax solo, but the GFR has a guitar solo which is also pretty kickass. I guess it depends on what style of music you like (50's or 70's Rock)
