"Walking on Sunshine" is a song by Eddy Grant, originally released as a single and the title track of his 1979 album Walking on Sunshine. Grant's original version was not a hit, but the song was remade three years later by Rockers Revenge, a studio project assembled by producer Arthur Baker. The single, with vocals by Donnie Calvin, peaked at number four on the UK Singles Chart and reached the top thirty in Belgium, the Netherlands, and New Zealand. The single did not chart on the Billboard Hot 100, but was number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play charts for one week and peaked at number 63 on the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart. The song's bassline would later be sampled in Eleanor's 1988 song "Adventure", itself a number-one Dance Club Play hit in 1988.
