Kung Fu Fighting – Carl Douglas

As far as I remember, Kung Fu Fighting is the 2nd 7″ 45RPM I bought as a kid, with my own money.

First one was Ramaya by Afric Simone in 1975.

The one-hit wonder behind the disco novelty smash « Kung Fu Fighting, » Carl Douglas was also the first Jamaican-born artist to score a number one single in the United States.

US Billboard #1 HOT 100 in 1974

The song was covered by CeeLo Green with Jack Black for the Kung Fu Panda franchise.

Have a few posts on my « Music Education » on the blog…

Also known as Les/Los/The Chakachas, they were formed by bandleader Gaston Bogaert, ex-Los Juano Boengs and The Continentals, percussion (conga and tumba); Tito Puente’s singer wife Kari Kenton, vocals and maracas; Vic Ingeveldt (a Dutchman from Liege), saxophone; Charlie Lots, trumpet; Christian Marc, piano; Henri Breyre, guitar and backing vocals; and Bill Raymond, bass guitar. All were native to Schaarbeek (a district of Brussels), or nearby Charleroi, Willebroek and Liege.
