BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

R.I.P. Joni Sledge (September 13, 1956 – March 10, 2017)

“We Are Family” is a 1979 dance hit song by Sister Sledge, composed by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers. Rodgers and Edwards offered the song to Atlantic Records; although the record label initially declined, the track was released as a single from the album of the same name and quickly began to gain club and radio play. It eventually went Gold, becoming the number one R&B and number two pop song on the US charts in 1979. Along with the tracks, “He’s the Greatest Dancer” and “Lost in Music”, “We Are Family” reached number one on the disco charts. It was also the theme song for the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates.

In 1984 the song was remixed by Bernard Edwards and re-released where it chated again in the UK at #33.
