"Funkytown" is a 1980 disco hit song written by Steven Greenberg and performed by the band Lipps Inc. The song expresses the singer's pining for a metaphorical place that will "keep me movin', keeps me groovin' with some energy". It is said that the song was written while the band lived in Minneapolis, MN and with dreams of moving to New York City, NY. It reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Dance charts in 1980, also reaching number 1 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Australia and The Netherlands. It reached No. 2 in the UK, Sweden and on the U.S. R&B chart. "Funkytown" is often considered to be one of disco's last stands. It was Lipps Inc's only U.S. Top 40 hit.
