Song of the Day: Rufus Thomas, “Do The Funky Chicken”

Happy heavenly 104th to singer, songwriter, dancer, comedian, disc jockey, and altogether cool guy Rufus Thomas. Rufus is best known for his dance songs such as "Walking The Dog," "Willy Nilly," and of course, "Do The Funky Chicken," which he released in 1969 and which reached #28 on the Hot 100, #5 on the R&B chart, and #18 in the UK. Here he is from Wattstax in 1972.
