"Georgy Porgy" is a David Paich song released from Toto's self-titled debut album in 1978. It was released as a single and charted on the Billboard Hot 100 (#48) as well as on both the R&B (#18) and the Dance (#80) charts. Cheryl Lynn provided the female backing vocal.
The song is still performed on tour. It is adapted with improvisational solos on guitar and keyboards. In an 1988 interview with Modern Drummer, Jeff Porcaro discussed developing the groove for "Georgy Porgy":
"...it's imitating Paul Humphrey heavily; it's imitating Earl Palmer very heavily. When it comes to that groove, my biggest influences were Paul Humphrey, Ed Geene, Earl Palmer, and the godfather of that 16th-note groove, James Gadson. That "Georgie Porgie" groove I owe to them."
It was covered in 1999 by Eric Benét with Faith Evans on Benét's "A Day in the Life" album.
