Released on July 28, 1979 as the lead single for Michael’s first solo record for Epic, “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” ruled the airwaves in the late Summer of 1979. Even though the track was firmly entrenched in the Disco idiom it comprised much more than just the four on the floor kick drum pattern and open hi-hats. Frenetic string and horn work, a falsetto never heard before from Michael and the nastiest of nasty synth bass work from Greg Phillinganes this song was and is a party starter.
