January 1, 1970

“Move On Up” is a song by Curtis Mayfield from his 1970 debut album, Curtis. Nearly nine minutes long on the album version, it was released as a single in the United States, but failed to chart. An edited version of the song spent 10 weeks in the top 50 of the UK Singles Chart in 1971, peaking at #12, and it has become a soul classic over the years. In 2021, it was listed at #474 on Rolling Stone’s “Top 500 Best Songs of All Time”.
