Even as a straight white guy I get why this was a huge disco hit (in the post disco era) and a gay anthem, it's a heap of fun. I love that Paul Shaffer who we all know from his long-time work with Dave Letterman co-wrote it, he's an icon in his own right.

Different perspectives or just different timeframes of the same event?

The two singers also have really good voices.

That was Jocelyn Brown, whose voice is strikingly similar.

It always cracked me up when Letterman would randomly turn to the band and holler, "hey Paul!  How's the weather?"

Ah, I got the power song mixed up with this on, that does features Martha Wash, as you probably know.

Yup. She's featured (and credited) in more songs on the second C + C album, even doing a duet or two with Zelma Davis. I wonder how many more they'd have done if David Cole hadn't died.

/phone almost changed 'duet' to 'diet'

Kinda crappy how they downplayed the real singer. I don't know how much, but it seemed like they were getting toward Milli Vanilli territory.
