Eddy's 80s Grooves Part 7 (Best Of 1983)

Donna Summer
Let’s go back to 1983 with Eddy's 80s Grooves part 7! 'Hot Summer Nights' by Love Club is one the tracks (“It's so warm outside and you're so warm inside”) as some kind of prelude to summer:

“Explosive, sexually charged Hi-NRG dance track that was released on West End Records in 1983. I had never even heard of this song until I got the West End Story Box Set Volumes 1-4. This song appears on the fourth disc. In the booklet, it doesn't say much about it except that it was written by none other than Jay "Mixin" Dixon, that notorious house DJ who has become famous for playing these types of songs on urban radio. He even appears towards the end of the song, doing a rap narrative to the lead singer about how there going to "make it right on this summer's night, it'll be just you and me." As for the lead singer, I have no clue. No name is given in the credits. Her voice is very powerful, and she couldn't have been more than 28 when she made this. You begin to wonder why she didn't go on to a bigger career. No doubt this was a one-time studio affair for Dixon and this no-name female singer. After listening to this song, you'll be craving for more from these two. All and all, Hot Summer Nights by Love Club is a perfect song to listen to on a July night.” (Discogs.com)
