Flashback: “We Are Family” by Sister Sledge

In honor of the passing of Toni Sledge this past Sunday, here’s a look back at Sister Sledge’s biggest hit, topping the charts in 1979.

I always think of a couple of things when I hear this song. First, the Pittsburgh Pirates, who won the World Series that year, adopting this song as their unofficial theme for that season.

Secondly, this seemed to be a theme song at weddings I’ve attended of relatives and friends. At weddings, this song is timeless. It doesn’t matter if it’s 1979, 1999, or 2017; it’s a perfect fit.

Give it a listen, and I’ll be back tomorrow with an aircheck.
