Jungle Fever by Chakachas (1971)

Jungle Fever by Chakachas (1971)
"Jungle Fever" is a 1971 track performed by Belgian producers The Chakachas, written by head producer Roland Kluger (as Bill Ador) and first issued in Belgium by Swineyard, an independent. The song reached #8 in the 1972 United States Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at #29 in the United Kingdom. "Jungle Fever" was banned by the BBC, who took exception to the song's heavy breathing and moaning. The song was a greater success in America, selling over one million copies and being awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in March 1972. Billboard ranked it as the #51 song for 1972.
