Super Hits of The 70's

Another find from the excavation - the entire cassette tape set of "Super Hits of The 70's" {I noticed that in the image provided from amazon.com, for some reason they had excised Gene Simmons from the collage}, and so far, I was attracted to this volume in particular, because it contains "Kung Fu Fighting" by Carl Douglas, which has been a favorite tune ever since I heard it one day, and remember it being an amusing wonderful compliment to many of the Martial Arts events I had attended, and viewed in the media at the time - although eclipsing this was the ubiquitous "Eye of The Tiger" by Survivor, which seemed to accompany almost every kata at tournamets, and still does from time to time, especially the first few strains.

Also available in this series, many of the songs I have heard on Coast to Coast AM, including Black Magic Woman, Magic, Midnight At The Oasis, Spiders and Snakes, and many others. A very interesting foray into time-travel.




Kung Fu Fighting
Carl Douglas

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightning
But they fought with expert timing

They were funky China men from funky Chinatown
They were chopping them up and they were chopping them down
It's an ancient Chineese art and everybody knew their part
From a feint into a slip, and kicking from the hip

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightning
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung
He said here comes the big boss, lets get it on
We took a bow and made a stand, started swinging with the hand
The sudden motion made me skip now we're into a brand knew trip

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightning
But they did it with expert timing

(repeat)..make sure you have expert timing
Kung-fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning
