Hollywood Swinging

Jamiroquai's cover of the Kool & The Gang track Hollywood Swinging originally appeared on a Japanese MiniDisc release in 1997, and a few years later the band recorded the track with Kool & The Gang for their 2004 album "The Music Odyssey". This new recording appeared on the soundtrack for the 2005 movie "Roll Bounce" and shortly afterwards the track got the remix treatment from Ralphi Rosario.
