Kung Fu Fighting was written by Carl Douglas and Biddu Appaiah (who also produced the song). The song was originally meant to be the B-side to the track I Want to Give You My Everything. Biddu originally hired Carl to sing the song, but he needed something to record for the B-side of the record and he asked Carl if he had any lyrics they could use. Carl chose the lyrics that would be called Kung Fu Fighting and worked on a melody for it without taking it too seriously

Kung Fu Fighting" is a disco song by Jamaican vocalist Carl Douglas, with production by British-Indian musician Biddu. It was released as a single in 1974 on the cusp of a chopsocky film craze and rose to the top of the British, Australian, Canadian and American charts, in addition to reaching the top of the Soul Singles chart. It received a Gold certification from the RIAA in 1974 and popularized disco music.

Biddu (From the Metro newspaper August 6, 2004): "Kung Fu Fighting was not meant to be a hit. Carl Douglas recorded something for an A-side of a single and every session was three hours long. We spent two hours on the first song and then took a break and I said: 'Quick guys, we need to record the B-side in two takes. Kung Fu Fighting was the B-side so I went over the top on the 'huhs' and the 'hahs' and the chopping sounds

While "Kung Fu Fighting," "Dance the Kung Fu," and "Witchfinder General" fall into the novelty category, the other songs have more romantic lyrics and are competent, if unremarkable, examples of Northern soul-pop. Had "I Don't Care What People Say," "Never Had This Dream Before" or "I Want to Give You My Everything" been recorded by Al Wilson, Johnny Bristol, Willie Hutch, or Johnnie Taylor in 1974, critics would have at least acknowledged them as decent.
