BURNING THE GROUND FUNK EXCLUSIVE
“One Nation Under a Groove” is a 1978 song by Funkadelic, the title track from their album One Nation Under a Groove. The lyrics refer to dancing as a way to freedom, though the “dancing” could be easily seen as a metaphor of breaking boundaries, keeping with the album’s theme. Compared to Funkadelic’s earlier output, that was characterized by sound typical for rock music, this song has sound more typical for dance music. The 12″ single of the song is an extension of the album track.
“One Nation Under a Groove” was released as a single and reached #31 on the Billboard Club Play Singles chart. It has endured as a dance funk classic and is probably Funkadelic’s most widely-known song. “One Nation Under a Groove” peaked at #28 on the Hot 100 and reached #1 on the Billboard Soul chart for six weeks, the longest of any number one single released in 1978.
The song is included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s list of 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll. It is also ranked #474 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.
