#72: Rufus & Chaka ‘Do You Love What You Feel?’

masterjam.jpgWhat would our countdown be without this little ditty produced by one Quincy Jones? Rufus & Chaka's "Do You Love What You Feel" can still turn a party out, coming in with a bpm of 120 that allows DJs to blend it in and out of Dance sets with ease. It comes from the Masterjam album, which saw the return of Khan to Rufus after the Chaka-free Numbers didn't live up to the band's earlier success. Full disclosure: Chaka is one of my favorite screamers. Her powerhouse vocals paired with the track's funky percussion and requisite "disco whistle" easily makes this one of the best feel-good tracks of the late '70s and a current favorite that is still in my own personal rotation.

If this song doesn't make you dance, you have no pulse.
