Rags_to_Rufus#16 – Rufus & Chaka Khan – “Tell Me Something Good” – (1974)

This song is funky as hell. It was written by Stevie Wonder and excellently recorded by Chicago-based mixed-race funk band Rufus and released on the somewhat-funnily named Rags to Rufus in 1974. Like Diana Ross and Frankie Valli, Chaka Khan was sometimes credited apart from the band in which she was a member. The single for this song was released as by ‘Rufus and Chaka Khan.’ It reached #3 on the Hot 100.
