Tell Me Something Good – Rufus Ft. Chaka Khan (1974)

Tell Me Something Good by Rufus Ft. Chaka Khan is just one of the many great songs you’d hear on The Beat Chicago including our Great Golden Grooves programming where we feature classic R&B, soul and the funk from 10PM – 2AM. 

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 60’s, 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.

From 1974, written by Stevie Wonder and performed by him at many concerts he’s done throughout the years, Chaka Khan’s voice and the band from the south side of Chicago would hit gold with “Tell Me Something Good” by 1975.

The song peaked at number three on Billboard’s pop charts and would hit around the world.

Tell Me Something Good won the group a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and set them off on a ten plus year run of soul, funk & RnB hits including You Got The Love, Sweet Thing, the Quincy Jones produced Do You Love What You Feel, Ain’t Nobody and more.
