The Gap Band Song List
The Gap Band was formed in 1967 in Tulsa, Oklahoma by brothers Charlie, Robert, and Ronnie Wilson. Originally calling themselves the Greenwood, Archer, and Pine Street Band, they shortened their name in 1973 and scored a number of his throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s. Eventually noted for their light, airy love songs, the Gap Band released their debut in 1974 to little success. But by 1978, the Gap Band had risen into the Top 10 with hits like “Shake” and “I’m in Love.”
The single “I” Don’t Believe You Wanna Get Up and Dance (Oops Upside Your Head)” became the Gap Band’s big breakthrough in 1979, however, and by the mid 1980’s, they’d scored a number of hits: "Burn Rubber", "Humpin'", "Yearning For Your Love", "Outstanding", "You Dropped a Bomb on Me", "I Found My Baby", "Early In the Morning" and "Party Train,” to name a few. By 1984, the Gap Band was experiencing diminishing success, although they continued to record, perform, and tour, consistently drawing crowds.
Eventually Charlie Wilson launched a solo career, but in the mid 1990’s, the Gap Band reunited to release a greatest hits album, The Gap Band: Live and Well (1996.) Since that time, the Gap Band has found resurgence in popularity thanks to rap artists such as Snoop Dogg, Mia X, and Warren G., who frequently sample the band’s classics. Most recently, the Gap Band’s classic “You Dropped a Bomb on Me” was featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, a popular video game.
