Galactic Funk (Wikki Wikki Wikki Wikki)

YouTube - Newcleus - Jam On Revenge (The Wikki-Wikki Song) They don't make many songs like this these days; not with the current popularity of "Rap" and a"Hippity Hop Hip Hop". Gone I guess are the days of "Galactic Funk" as displayed in this You Tube rendition of "Newcleus" (click on the link) of "Jam On Revenge (The Wikki -Wikki Song)".
Take a chance and listen to the syncopated beat of this 1983 tune from these "Alvin and the Chipmunks" sound alikes. Bet you can't do this "Wikki-Wikki-Wikki-Wikki (pause) Wikki-Wikki-Wikki-Wikki ". See if you can hear the references to "Fantasy Island" and also the "Sugar Hill Gang" in this cosmic funktastic song.

In 1983, the cooks at "The Captain's Clambake Emporium" on Cape Cod used to sing this song when I was around as my name is "Rick" or "Ricky" and if Barbara Walters were saying my name it would sound like "Wikki". Get down,get funky, "Wikki-Wikki-Wikki-Wikki."
