"Movin'" is a song by R&B/disco band Brass Construction. The song was culled together from a 16-minute jam session by the band.[1] Released from their self-titled 1976 album, the single spent a week at number one on the R&B singles chart in the spring of that year. It was also successful on the pop charts, peaking at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100.[2] On the disco dance charts, "Movin'" went to number one for four weeks and spent a total of twelve weeks on the chart.[3]

The song is heard playing in the background in the Good Times episode "The Big Move", Part One, at the Evanses' going-away party, where they receive the news that the Evanses' patriarch, James, had been killed in an automobile accident.

"Got Myself Together" by the Bucketheads sampled the song.
