FlinterFile: Heatwave- Boogie Nights
In 1977, Heatwave had their first hit. This song was their debut single, written by Rod Temperton, who later wrote hits like Thriller and Rock With You. It would be the inspiration for yet another movie set in the disco era, named… Boogie Nights. The singer of Heatwave, Johnny Wilder Jr., would later be struck by a van and be paralyzed from his neck on. It was a big hit for the British group, reaching number 2 in both the US and the UK, and number 1 in New Zealand. Enjoy
