The Disco era has long since left us. But yesterday on my drive home I was sampling some tunes. I stumbled upon one of my favorites by a group named Lipps Inc. Funky Town has perhaps the best use of a cow bell that I have ever heard. And trust me, it's not just a steady thump, there is someone working that thing over.
So the next time you catch it. Just sample the honey dripping sounds of that cow bell.
PS. This song was also performed in 1987 by the group Psuedo Echo
