download#21 – Carl Douglas – “Kung Fu Fighting” – (1974)

This is classic. One hit wonder Carl Douglas is actually from Jamaica and his song about Kung Fu has appeared in about every movie, commercial, and TV show ever made. It was a #1 hit in the U.S. and all over the world and is a great blend of funk and disco… and Chinese traditional music? Just kidding, but it does have that one little bit of music associated with Chinese music. You know what I’m talking about. My favorite thing about this song is that is from an album ridiculously titled Kung Fu Fighting and Other Love Songs.
