“SLY AND THE FAMILY STONE – HOT FUN IN THE SUMMERTIME”

24 Jul

null

“Hot Fun in the Summertime” is a 1969 song recorded by Sly and the Family Stone. The single was released in the wake of the band’s high-profile performance at Woodstock, which greatly expanded their fanbase. The song peaked at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart and number 3 on the U.S. Billboard soul singles chart in autumn 1969.[1] It is ranked as the seventh biggest U.S. hit of 1969,[2] and the 65th in Canada.

Rolling Stone ranked the song #247 on their list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”, and it also has been named in lists by Yahoo! Music and AskMen as an all-time “summer anthem.”[3][4]

    The thing I always remember about a Sly and the Family Stone is how late they always showed up for their concerts. I once sat in my college gym on cramped wooden bleachers for two and one-half hours waiting for them to take the stage. But then they did and it was all worth it.
