The Beat Goes On

Song: The Beat Goes On
Artist: Ripple
Album: The Beat Goes On

For this Friday I am giving you a little slice of classic disco heaven...

Michigan-based American funk band Ripple's 1978 single "The Beat Goes On," one of the band's last singles.  Best known for their debut single "I Don't Know What it is, But it Sure is Funky" from 1973 (which you might know a bit from Kid 'N Play.)  The band was signed to GRC Records and had a handful of US R&B hits in the mid-70's.

I was recently introduced to "The Beat Goes On" from my friend Robb, though I do think I'd heard it before.  Though truth be told... how many songs use the phrase "The Beat Goes On?"

Actually, for a little Friday fun, why not leave a comment on this post of your favorite track that uses "The beat goes on."

Enjoy, and Happy Friday.
