"Get Down on It" is a 1982 RIAA million-selling Gold-certified single by American band Kool & the Gang. It was originally released on their Platinum-selling Something Special album in 1981.
The song hit the Top 10 of the U.S. Pop and R&B charts in Billboard in early 1982. It entered the UK charts in December 1981 and reached number 3, their highest-charting hit in the UK at that time. It spent a total of 12 weeks on the British play list. Ten years later, it was re-released in the UK charts - on the Mercury label - but only charted for a week (at number 69).
