Good Times by Chic

The song celebrates all that’s good about life – music, dancing and love. It also explores our short time here on earth by appreciating every second. A positive, upbeat and euphoric tune perfect for partying with your friends!

Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards composed this song for their disco band Chic in New York City in 1976. At that time there was cultural upheaval and economic distress with crime rates surging across the city; disco music offered relief and joy to many suffering under everyday stresses.

This track’s message of escape can be heard throughout, particularly its chorus which features the antiquarian line “Let’s cut the rug, little jive and jitterbug.” Furthermore, Kool & the Gang-style funk and a blaring horn section add to its eclecticism; along with driving basslines that pulse with handclaps (embedded electronically by Roland drum machines that sound like whipsaws). Furthermore, an emotive yet catchy vocal melody provides both upliftment and rousing moments throughout.

In 1979, at a time of mounting backlash against disco, CHIC’s exuberantly joyful Good Times proved dance music could be dynamic, complex, brilliantly produced and extremely funky. Though Good Times failed to save disco from becoming irrelevant again, its influence helped mold New Wave and Hip Hop music, inspiring generations of musicians who would bring groove-based sounds into their work as a result; also remaining one of the most sampled songs ever.

Numerous artists have used the song’s bass line and other motifs as inspiration, with Queen incorporating them in Their Dynamic Disco-Rock Anthem Another One Bites the Dust and Sugarhill Gang’s pioneering Rapper’s Delight being two notable examples. Nile Rodgers often ends their live shows by transitioning between Good Times and Rapper’s Delight as an homage to its role in modern day Hip Hop music.
