Love this song. I remembered this song playing at one of President Obama's gatherings. Everyone was up on the their feet dancing and enjoying this music. Curtis Mayfield was one of a kind, even Pres Obama knew that.

I always love this song. Recently watch The Wire and find out Cutty listens to this song while jogging. What a great series with great music taste.
Chorrell Piqué
At times I feel genuinely sorry for the people, who were not raised with this type of music. You must've really missed out.
Christian Kuzel
I think this song could possibly be one of the best pieces of music in human history. It grooves so hard that it almost makes me want to cry.

This song was an inspiration to me for during the Vietnam era I was discharged from the Army and everything in my life was about to move on up. The drum solos were great in this song.

Re-listened to this. And I am still slack-jawed. Triple threat: great songwriting, incredible playing, and great production/arrangement. I wonder who produced?

When music was music!!!! Love his kinda carryin on🤣🤣
Firecrest
I'm so old I bought this in 1970. 'Move on Up' opened the second side of mayfield's first solo album and was a revelation because it was one of the first times (Isaac Hayes 'Hot Buttered Soul' also) that a black artist was able to do lengthy album cuts. Don't know Kanye's music but Curtis was an American pioneer. The same album included 'We the People who are Darker Than Blue', a fab song I pondered long over and the coolest love-making song ever 'The Making of You'. I cried when he passed on and gave thanks for his music.
Floyd Guillot

More great words from a black man who cared about his community during the 70's. What a blessed time to be apart of this kind of creative greatness. Curtis Mayfield did more to help the entire black community than most politians.

My mom developed Alzheimer’s when I was 9. The hospital put her on a locked ward. My Dad had worked at the US Treasury for about 30 years. Our family had moved to Indianapolis and he came home in the weekends. Curtis Mayfield was about the most influential artist in my life. I listened to him finished high school in 2/12 years. Went to college twice . My father died when I was 15. So I owe Curtis Mayfield a lot.

Samuel Glass Jr.
MAD props not only to Mr. Gibson on bongos, but to whoever was on bass, and who helped Curtis with the string and horn arrangements...Hell, let's give it up for ALL the musicians!

Curtis Mayfield was just incredibly talented and sang such positive uplifting tunes.

The Best base...bongos...horns...\nStrings....if this doesn't move you ....you're DEAD.

Super dope. There should be a feature on Youtube that autoblocks people without good taste in music from voting or commenting. .

This Brother was bad....bad meaning good...as we used to say back in the days....

This was before loops so who ever played the bongos on this track had to be in incredible shape. He is beating the crap out of those things.
digitalsickness4
When i was a lone mess, this was such a good go to song. I love this song cause it always takes my mind off my worries. Just let the rythym take you away.
doc2skate
Curtis Mayfield was one of the most inspirational, motivational and philosophical artists ever.  His music was his thoughts and words, and that music spoke volumes.
