It was on the radio every hour. The long version was all that was played in the lifeguard office at the pool. It was an anthem in the summer of 1969.
And, it's an anthem today.
I'm not sure why...but the song fell out of favor in the '80s and '90s. All of a sudden, it feels new.
I was in the first row during their stadium tour days and on the dance floor when they did clubs. I had the opportunity to interview the voice of Rare Earth on both occasions...and he's one of the coolest guys in the business.
Like a lot of '70s acts...there's precious little video out there. If you'd rather the cleaner studio version, click here.
Or a cool remix.
And, celebrate the weekend!
