About Hollywood Swinging

"Hollywood Swinging" is a 1974 song by R&B/funk band Kool & the Gang from their album Wild and Peaceful. It was written by Robert "Kool" Bell, Ronald Bell, George M. Brown, Robert "Spike" Mickens, Claydes Charles Smith, Dennis R. Thomas and Rick A. Westfield. "Hollywood Swinging" was the group's first number one R&B single, reaching that position in June 1974. The single was a successful crossover hit, peaking at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart as well. In a 2015 interview Nile Rodgers stated that Chic's 1979 song "Good Times" was partly inspired by "Hollywood Swinging". Rodgers also stated he is the cousin of Robert Mickens.

I remember 
Not too long ago 
I went to a theater
And I saw the Kool & The Gang Show
I always wanted
To get into a band 
To sing my songs
And then become a bad piano playing man
So here I am 
In this Hollywood city
The city of the stars, movies, women and cars
Well, I guess I
I guess I
Star

Say, hey hey hey 
What ya got to say?
Say, hey hey hey
