Ragged Jim,

Are you sure the Bar-Kays ripped off Midnight Star?

"No Parking (On The Dance Floor)" by Midnight Star debuted 2/25/84 and climbed to #43 on the R&B charts.

"Freakshow On The Dance Floor" by the Bar-Kays debuted 3/31/84 and made it all the way to #2 on the R&B charts.

Hey, a month isn't much time to run into the studio and pull together a rip-off. And then to out-perform the original, which was still on the charts for almost two months of the four+ months "Freakshow" charted...I don't know.

What do you think?
