      Hey now! Who can resist the classic 70s song Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas? Certainly not me. And The Streak is hilarious.

      Heh...the scary thing is, I remember those songs. Vividly. Remember KC and the Sunshine Band? And my brother played 'Kung Fu Fighting' until I thought I'd scream. And...oh..."Wildwood Weed." Jim Stafford, I think. 'member? Hilarious.

      My favorite of the time was EWF, though. I still love EWF and make my kids sit quietly whenever they come on the radio. #2 son actually stole one of my CDs -- took it with him when he went to college and I haven't seen it since.

      Thank you for sharing some great music. I really enjoy this kind of Hubs with lots of video :-). It´s very inspiring.

      Elisabeth, please don't laugh, but I like these songs if I'm in the right mood. (Dunce mood, maybe?) Another shameful secret- I like disco! And I have to dance if I hear Kung Fu Fighting. Wildwood Weed- a favorite song of mine. You're right. It was Jim Stafford. Earth, Wind, and Fire = awesome. (I'm not sure you would value my opinion now, though). ;)

      Contribution, thanks for the kind words.

      And to think....1974 was the year I graduated high school. I remember all these songs only too well. And yes, we had some streakers during graduation. My brother drove the get-a-way car.
