  • Ro from Pembroke Pines"Dance with the boogie get high"

    I always thought that the lyrics were "Dance with the boogie get down."

    You live and you learn.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyPer: http://www.oldiesmusic.com/news.htm {10-31-2017}
    Keith Wilder, lead singer and co-founder of Heatwave with his late brother Johnny, died Sunday (October 29th, 2017) at the age of 68...
    The Dayton, Ohio native joined Johnny (who had been performing in Germany) in England in 1975. Signed to GTO Records there (and distributed by Epic Records in the US), they hit the charts with funk hits like "Boogie Nights" (#2* in 1977), "The Groove Line" (#7 in 1978) and the ballad "Always And Forever" (#18 in 1978)...
    Keith continued to perform in various incarnations of the group over the years, even after the paralysis and later death of Johnny...
    May he R.I.P.
    * "Boogie Nights" peaked at #2 {for 2 weeks} on Billboard's Top 100 chart, the two weeks it was at #2, the #1 record for both those weeks was "You Light Up My Life" by Debby Boone...
  • Richard Antony from Leeds,united KingdomRod Temperton. Without doubt the best songwriter to come out of UK.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn July 17th 1977, "Boogie Nights" by Heatwave entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #93; and on November 6th, 1977 it peaked at #2 (for 2 weeks) and spent over a half-year on the Top 100 (27 weeks, and for 9 of those weeks it was on the Top 10)...
    On October 2nd, 1977 it entered the Top 10 at #7, then it worked its way to #2 step by step, when to #6, #5, #4, #3, and finally #2 for 2 weeks, the following week it dropped down to #4...
    The two weeks it was at #2 on the Top 100, the #1 record for both those weeks was "You Light Up My Life" by Debby Boone...
    The septet had two other Top 100 records; "Always and Forever" (at #18 in 1978) and "The Groove Line" (at #7 in 1978).
  • Camille from Toronto, OhI agree with Keith, of Philadelphia. This song, well, it's okay, but I like Groove Line better and it's nowhere on Songfacts!
  • Keith from Philadelphia, PaRod Temperton one of the greatest songwriters ever.............
  • Chris from San Bernardino, Ca"Always And Forever" didn't hit the UK charts until 1980? Wow lol...
  • Reed from New Ulm, MnNot much into disco, but this has got to be a fave.
  • Al from New York, NyJohnnie Wilder was the group's lead singer, but Rod Temperton was the group's main songwriter, having written "Boogie Nights, The Groove Line and Always and Forever."
