    Hey everyone - I'm putting together yet another medley for my band to perform and I'm desperately in need of a third song to add to the following two: Boogie Fever (The Sylvers) and (the funky part of) Love Machine (Smokey Robinson).

    What I need is a song that was a huge hit, instantly recognizable, between 130 and 145 BPM, with some of the funky, driving beat characteristics of the other two.

    If anyone can give me some suggestions I'd be most pleased. I've been racking my brains for days, checking out everything I could think of on Amazon but no luck so far.

    Thanks,

    Marc C.

    song for medley

    Thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately Stayin' Alive is too slow... I still haven't come up with anything better than Day Tripper, which has the right tempo, and a good bass line, but is not exactly what I'd call 'funky'.
    Sigh... surely there are some tunes out there that would fit in nicely... I just can't seem to find any. :damn:

    Keep on rockin',
