Kool & The Gang - Joanna (1983)
Kool & The Gang was formed in Jersey City, NJ in the early 60s consisting of brothers Robert and Ronald Bell and some of their high school buddies. The gang hit their stride in the 70s and early 80s with funky hits like Jungle Boogie, Ladies Night and Get Down on It. In 1980, they released their festive anthem Celebration, which has been played at every wedding and party ever since. Three years later, they returned to the top of the charts with their breezy ballad Joanna. For the video, Kool and The Gang head on down to Joanna's Diner. There, they serenade Joanna as she works hard for the money serving them coffee.
