Kristy & Jimmy McNichol - Hot Tunes

The self-titled Kristy and Jimmy McNichol album is from 1978 and sounds like it. I believe Kristy was only 16 at the time this album was made, her brother was 17. Although most of the album can be forgotten, there is one song that rises above all of the others: Hot Tunes. The first time I heard this song I couldn't stop laughing...or dancing! My obsession with this song resulted in a group of friends, including myself, performing as the "Hot Tunes Dancers" at parties. We would come out in our retro disco outfits and singalong to this song. Of course, the best part was getting all low on the ground for the countdown just to jump up and "blast off"! Have a listen and see if you can resist doing the same exact thing.
