In the summer of 1969, a song hit the airwaves that truly hit home with the public buying singles. While it wasn't their first single, or even their most successful, but "Hot Fun in the Summertime" is just a delectable treat, one worthy of being put on your summer playlist, no matter the year. So here we are, 45 years later, and I still wanna hear this song once we get into the dog days of summer. So let's celebrate the joy that is Sly and the Family Stone as they sing "Hot Fun in the Summertime".
Sly and the Family Stone where pretty unusual for the time, as they band managed to be integrated, as well as being multi-gendered, showing everyone could get along. As the name suggested, the band was fronted by songwriter/singer/producer Sly Stone and included several of his family and friends, bringing a whole new level of love to the table. You can find "Hot Fun in the Summertime" on the 'Greatest Hits' of Sly and the Family Stones, which can be purchased from iTunes and Amazon.
