Monday Music "Give it up" by KC and the Sunshine Band

I have been working the OT again, the powers that be wanted me to go to Day-shift for the next 3 weeks for a special project....ehhh on Day-shift.   I much prefer Night-shift.    I decided to roll with some KC and the sunshine band,  The band hit it really big in the late 70's.  I still have a couple of their albums on vinyl in my record collection.  I tell people that I still like Disco but I like 80's music more :) 

"Give It Up" was a hit song for KC and the Sunshine Band, although it was simply credited as KC in many countries, including the US. Following the backlash against many disco artists on the charts at the beginning of the 1980s, the song was a comeback hit for the act in the US, where it peaked at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1984. The song had been an even bigger hit in the UK several months earlier, where it had hit No. 1 for three weeks in August 1983. It went on to become the 18th best-selling single of the year in the UK. It was the last of the act's hits in the US and UK, and the most successful of its 10 UK hits.



Here is the Music Video for the song, it was released in 1984.






I couldn't find out any information about the Music video.   Although it did get a lot of airtime on MTV.
