Kool & The Gang Jungle Boogie

‘Jungle Boogie’ is less Afro-beat, more Tarzan. This classic funk song was recorded by Kool & the Gang for their 1973 album Wild and Peaceful. Apparently, the song’s spoken vocal was performed by the band’s roadie. While the horn-heavy instrumentals became a regular sample in hip hop, the arced vocals would cement themselves into popular culture when the song featured in Tarantino’s movie Pulp Fiction.
