Happy New Years, Ya Filthy Animals -- and a dope track

And let's celebrate with a slice of dreamy,oddly innocent romanticism from Shalamar, Over And Over.

This track has everything you could want from a late-period disco-funk track -- chunky synth bassline, smoove vocal harmonies on the chorus, and a tricksy songwriter-show-off melody and chord progression. The tricky little bit of organ between the chorus and the start of the verse is brilliant as well.
