out of the options available, I chose ‘dancing machine’, but I really prefer the version from the album of the same name. many label it disco, but the ongoing strut in the beat makes it distinctly funk. truthfully, I’m not a fan of the genre, but I appreciate how it was a turning point for Michael and his brothers. it was a more mature sound that would be the catalyst for songs from ‘destiny’ and ‘off the wall’. it also gave michael the platform to demonstrate his evolving dance moves.
honourable mention: ‘how funky is your chicken’. fun and funny at the same time 😆
