Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Dance To The Music" - Rated 225/500!

Nothing said it better than the title of Sly & The Family Stone's 1967 debut album. They were, indeed, A Whole New Thing! Over his first six groundbreaking Epic LPs, Sly Stone - a maverick studio genius who heard things nobody else did - turned the worlds of Soul, R&B, funk and psychedelia completely upside-down with his breathtakingly innovative band, the Family Stone. Pop music was shaken to its very core by this racially-mixed aggregation of men and women whose lyrics, deftly laced with political and social commentary, were woven through groovy rhythms and infectious melodies that made standing still virtually impossible. Even their clothes were mind-bendingly cool!

The breakthrough Top Ten single that became the name of their sophomore album was everywhere in 1968! As well as being the most innovative “introduce the band” track ever, hearing Larry Graham, Cynthia Robinson, Rosie Stone, Greg Errico, Freddy Stone and Jerry Martini name-checked by Sly is so addictive it might cost the unwary a few days in rehab. As Sly says in the liner notes, his band is “as funky as nine cans of wet magic shave.” To which Cynthia answers, “All the squares go home!”

"Saxman Jerry Martini claims Stone did this song just to satisfy CBS executives' desire for a hit. 'He hated it,' Martini said. 'It was so unhip to us. The beats were glorified Motown beats.' But 'Dance' fit Stone's vision for the band: 'I wanted everyone to get a chance to sweat.'" - Rolling Stone
