Hot wax please

On this day on 1977, Rose Royce held the No.1 position on Billboard's Hot 100 with Car Wash, the title track to the Joel Schumacher penned, blacksploitation comedy of the same name.

A pinnacle LP for the Los Angeles group, the soundtrack for the film topped the charts and produced a bevy of hits, including the slow jam classics: I'm Going Down, Wishing On A Star and I Wanna Get Next To You.

30+ years later, the band is still gettin' their groove on.

I'm just sayin'.

Car Wash
I Wanna Get Next To You
Wishing On A Star
