Kool and The Gang Kick of the day

Celebration

Probably everybody born after this song came out knows this song. Named after the 1980 album Celebrate! The song featured heavily on the radio for nearly the entire year and is still heard today at weddings and parties, and is a popular anthem for sporting events, especially at the end of a championship win.

Fun Fact: This post-disco, upbeat dance song was Kool & the Gang’s only American #1 This song was foreshadowed in the hit “Ladies Night” with the lyrics “Come on, let’s all celebrate” near the end. According to Ronald Bell, that was “the key to finishing ‘Celebration.'” No one close to the band was surprised by the song’s enduring popularity as a celebratory anthem. In fact, lead singer J.T. Taylor’s mother predicted it. Taylor told Billboard: “My mother told me when she heard it, ‘You’re gonna play this song for the rest of your life – so get ready!”
