    Chameleon by Herbie Hancock. I love that groove. I read somewhere that the groove was stolen from the Sly and the Family Stone song "Thanks You (falletin me be mice elf agin)", which also has a butt shaking groove. Sly and the Fam have a bunch of songs with butt shaking grooves. You should check em out. My favorite is Dance To The Music. So simple yet so butt shaking.
  4. "Chameleon's" melody is stolen from "Thank You" but the main groove (that chromatic to Bb, then walk up to Eb thing) is all Herbie.

    "I Wish" by Stevie Wonder - that's the one that always seems to get everybody dancing at live gigs!

    I've seen quite a few butts move to "Brick House" (Commodores).
