It only took 5 minutes to write this #1 song

Back in 1975, a group named, "Wild Cherry" was trying to make it in the music business.  They toured and played bars and clubs to survive. But, never had that big radio hit.

One night at a club, a group of customers asked them, "When are you going to play some funky music"?  That phrase inspired the band to write, "Play That Funky Music" in a whopping 5 minutes on a drink order pad.  It went on to be their only hit, and it went all the way to #1.  Check out the 'funky' video below!
