Album: Float OnReleased: 1977Charted:
The Floaters were an R&B group formed by members of The Detroit Emeralds. This was their only hit.
Group member James Mitchell got the idea for this when it came to him in a dream. He jumped out of bed and hummed the tune into a tape recorder so he would remember it.
The idea for the lyrics was to spotlight each member of the band, who introduced themselves with their name and astrological sign.
