FCS Daily Music Videos – ‘Le Freak’ Chic

Chic  is an American band that was organized in 1972 by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards

During late 1978, the band released the album C’est Chic, containing one of its better-known tracks, “Le Freak“. It was created in a jam session in Edwards’ apartment, after they had failed on New Year’s Eve 1977 to meet with Grace Jones at New York’s nightclub Studio 54. The original refrain “Aaa, fuck off”, intended for the doormen of Studio 54, was replaced that night with “Aaa, freak out”, after trying a version with “Aaa, freak off”. The resulting single was a great success, scoring No. 1 on the US charts and selling more than six million copies

Listen to us, I’m sure you’ll be amazed
Big fun to be had by everyone

Freak out!All that pressure got you down
Has your head been spinning all around?
Feel the rhythm, check the rhyme
Come on along and have a real good time
