Kung Fu Fighting - Carl Douglas

OK, more one-hit wonders (this is BAD!): This Jamaican session singer for Pye records collaborated with Vivian Hawke on this '74 mega-hit (#1 Billboard Pop and Soul). It was supposed to be the B-side to another song and thus was recorded in only the 10 min. left of studio time! 1st Jamaican singer to have a US #1 hit. #100 on "VH1's 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders". Used in "Wayne's World 2" in '94. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Russians" by Sting. incredible tune - his best in my book.
