    Default 70's song soul/funk with only: "Get down get down get down get down" Please help :-)

    Hi, I'm looking for a soul/funk song from the 70's with only the lines: "Get down get down get down". It was a minor hit in the Netherlands. It has nothing to do with Kool & the Gang or KC & the Sunshine band. Does anybody know it. :-)

    Is it Gilbert O'Sullivan "Get Down" ?

    or Joe Simon "Get Down, Get Down"

    Can you do a little sound recording of you singing it? It may be easier to work out then. At the moment, I'm hearing it with the backing singers singing it. Or even a synthesized male voice.

    Robby, why don't you response to my last guess. Do you have overlooked it?

    Hi, Wurzlsepp thanks for your answer. It's not Brass Construction, but thanks. :-)
    I've worked for more than a week on the "Like the wind" song and checked more than 15000 titles. I made a list. I don't think the answer is in that list but you never know. If not better luck next time. Hope we'll find it soon. :-)

    By the way, I'll give a quicker reaction next time. Sorry for that. :-)

    It isn't that one either, but thanks :-) The song I'm looking for was a minor hit in the Netherlands. It only contains the text: "Get down get down get down." But the title isn't "Get down", I'm sure of that. The song was part of a show called 35 op een rij show, 30 years ago (The Hague, Netherlands). A show with minor Dutch hits and bubbling under hits, and people had to guess what song they were playing. :-)
