Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Kool & the Gang- 'Tonight'

Hey beautiful girl so lovely tonight
Show me the way show me the light
Music playing people swaying
The next thing I knew we started to groove

Dancing and dancing moving so free
A feeling of love had come over me
I held her close and knew it was right
What a perfect surprise I had finally seen the light
Tonight, ooooh
This is the night you'll see the light

Who doesn't love Kool & the Gang? They have been together since 1964 which means that they've influenced four or five generations with the 70 million albums that they've sold. In The Heart was their 15th studio album when it was released back in 1983. It spawned a few hit singles including "Tonight" which landed in Billboard's top 20 in 1984. It was written from the standpoint of a 16-year-old boy about to come of age and the video was in heavy rotation on MTV for quite awhile.

"Tonight" was released at a point in time when Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and Michael Jackson had everyone dancing along so this catchy track, with its' dance groove fit right in. Check out the video below? Do you remember this one?
