KC & the Sunshine Band

That's the Way (I Like It)

Song Review by

"That's the Way I Like It" captures some of the live excitement of K.C. & the Sunshine Band's shows. Probably the most sexually suggestive of all their sides, it's notable for its sensational horn arrangement and the upfront female vocals. Co-written by band founders Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch, "That's the Way I Like It" stayed at number one R&B and number one pop for two week in late 1975. A 1984 cover by Dead and Alive was a Top 20 U.K. hit.
