For this Record of the Week we turn back the clock to the first 45 I ever bought, Grand Funk's cover of Little Eva's The Locomotion.
Though this seems like an odd song for Grand Funk to cover, I've always loved the raw "crunch" they brought to the song. Others must have liked it too, as Grand Funk, like Little Eva, took the song all the way to number one.
Who said songs about dances were dead, especially since thirteen years later Kylie Minogue took this song back into the top three with her take on this dance classic.
