CHIC Emulators Posted on 2014-02-22 14:55


The Swedish acapella group “The Real Group” is doing a medley based around the bass line of Bernard Edwards on CHIC‘s “Good Times“. They are pointing out it’s influence and use on other artists songs, such as “Rapper’s Delight” by the Sugarhill Gang, Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust“, Blondie’s “Rapture” and Daft Punk’s “Around The World“.
