By the early '70s the Juilliard-trained Larry Blackmon became leader of a dozen or so musicians and in 1974 changed their name from the New York City Players to Cameo. Viewed as a minor-league Funkadelic (with whom Cameo shared a label), they were moderately successful, with three Top 10 R&B hits: I Just Want to Be, Sparkle, and Shake Your Pants. Unhappy with how the band was being treated, in 1981 Blackmon moved operations to Atlanta, where he started his Atlanta Artists label. The early albums were unsuccessful, and to save money, the personnel was reduced to a core band of Blackmon, Tomi Jenkins, and Nathan Leftenant. This version of the band produced the spare, ominous funk of She’s Strange, Word Up, Candy and Back and Forth.

Dah pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you,
So tell all the boys and girls.
Tell your brother, your sister
And mama too, cause they’re
About to go down
And you’ll know just what to do.
 
Wave your hands in the air
Like you don’t care, glide by
The People as they start to look and stare.
Do you dance, do your dance quick
Mama, come on baby, tell me what’s
The Word, ah – word up,
Everybody say when you hear the call
You got to get it underway,
Word up, it’s the code word,
No matter where you say it,
You’ll know that you’ll be heard.
 
Now all you sucker. D.J.’s
Who think you’re fly
There’s got to be a reason
And we know the reason why.
And act real cool
But you got to realise
That you’re acting like fools.
If there’s music we can use it
We need to dance.
We don’t have that time
For psychological romance
No romance
No romance
No romance for me mama
Come on baby tell me what’s the word.
Ah – word up,
Everybody say when you hear the call
You got to get it underway.
 
Dial “L” for low...
Come on, all you people say...
Word up – word up
