“Knock on Wood” is a hit 1966 song written by Eddie Floyd and Steve Cropper and originally performed by Eddie Floyd. The Eddie Floyd version peaked at number twenty-eight on the Hot 100, and spent one week at number one on the soul singles.

The song has been frequently covered, first by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas, and with charting singles by David Bowie and Amii Stewart.”
