“Time to sit back and unwind”
This is it. The quintessential summer song on the first week of the summer. As far as throwbacks go, it doesn’t get more throwback than this. No throwback list does NOT include this. I’m pretty sure it was released as a throwback jam even back in ’91. This jam embodies the fine line between pool party and chill.
Before this song, Kool & the Gang had the rift on the unquestionably chill end of the spectrum. Ironically theirs was titled “Summer MADNESS” for some reason. You’re mad if this doesn’t get you relaxed and unwound!
