Don’t Disturb This Groove – The System (1987)

The best music, movies and TV shows have all been made, we’re here to help you remember them all. This is just one of the many great songs you’d hear on The Beat Chicago. 

There’s enough stations playing rock n’ roll classics and the same 80’s songs from Bon Jovi, Journey, John Cougar, Elton John all day long and that’s all cool but, when you want something completely different?  When you want everything from Marvin Gaye, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Spinners to Stevie B, C+C Music Factory and more of the music that keeps you movin?  We’re it.

See, we’re all about the classics too… Classic R&B and dance of the ’60s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, freestyle and more.  For us, it’s not about how old a song is, it’s about how good it is and this is as good as it gets.

David Frank and Mic Murphy were The System.  This massive hit was recorded in ’86 and released in 1987.

In May 1987, Don’t Disturb This Groove hit #1 on The U.S. Billboard R&B singles chart where it would sit on top for one week. Later on in the year, it peaked at #4 in July on Billboard’s Hot 100.

Known as ‘synth mavericks’, the duo was first heard from with early 80’s club hits including their first, “In Times Of Passion” as well as “You’re In My System” (which would later be covered by Robert Palmer).
