Eddie Kendricks – Keep on Truckin’ (Part 1)

First Hit #1: November 10, 1973

Is there a more ’70s song than Keep on Truckin’? You’ve got disco, you’ve got that odd obsession with trucking that gripped the ’70s, and the two trends collide into each other in a song that is funky as hell. To be honest, I have no idea what this song has to do with trucking, and in all honesty I don’t know what it’s about at all – Kendricks has a nice sounding voice, but I genuinely have no idea what the hell he’s going on about. It’s a fun song, but it’s such an odd slice of music. Worse yet is the single edit doesn’t really have structure to it either, feeling very much like a much longer piece that fades out because radio hits generally aren’t eight minutes long.

It’s interesting, but it’s an oddball.
