Knock On Wood (thing)
Return to Knock On Wood (thing)
A classic 1966 [Stax Records]  by Eddie Floyd, who was, once, in [Wilson Pickett|The Falcons]; co-written by Floyd and [Steve Cropper]. It utilized the "Midnight Hour" beat (good for doing The Jerk, IIRC) and Stax sat on the recording (done in '65) due to that and other similarities. Later [cover song|cover]ed, sans all subtlety, using a [disco music|disco]STOMP beat, sound FX, and a singer-for-hire named [Amii Stewart]. A punk version, from about the same time, lost a lot in the loudFAST translation.
