Everybody Take It to The Top (Stomp! by Brothers Johnson)

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. This song is poppy and disco but has an undercurrent below it that it will beat you down mercilessly if it had to. Listen to the group vocals in the chorus, does this sound like a group of guys you want to f**k with? .
  2. The bass line.  The late Louis Johnson (a Brother) KILLS THIS!!!    I wish I could take the credit for playing bass on this, to stand up point to the speaker and say “I did that”.  It’s that good.
  3. I have never played this song without my day getting significantly better.
  4. The video for this is below, where there is dancing.  I would love to have been there, or in a club when this song was smoking hot.  Truthfully, though, I’d be standing in the corner with a cocktail, but still……….


Info about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stomp!

The artist is Brothers Johnson: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Brothers_Johnson

Stomp! is probably the Brothers biggest crossover hit (pop / disco), though hardcore fans would point to the R&B classics of Strawberry Letter 23 and Get The Funk Out My Face

Here is the video, where said dancing occurs.
