#16 – The Jacksons – “Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)” – (1978)

The Jackson 5 were a pretty popular group in the 1960s and 70s. Michael Jackson pretty much ruled the 80s. And in between, for this brief moment in time, The Jacksons existed. It was the Jackson 5 under a different name. And this song came out right before Michael would hit it big huge with Off the Wall. Michael and Randy wrote the song and it has Michael on lead vocals, which is why many people think this was a Michael Jackson single. It’s an awesome disco hit and I promise it’s the last disco song I’ll feature for our Top 21 thing (I think). This song, which is eight minutes long on the album, peaked at #8.
