Alright guys, be honest….. How many of you thought Karen Young was Black when you first heard her voice? I know I did!! I think Karen Young was like a soulful version of Teena Marie! LOLOL I really can’t think of any other comparison right now. I used to rock the sh*t out of this song! And I don’t mean the little 45rpm either. This song was jumping from beginning to end, I don’t know how many remixed versions of this song exist, but I know it’s a LOT. The song “Hot Shot” hit #1 on the dance charts in 1978, and she had become a living icon of the disco era ever since. I personally remember playing this on just about ever birthday party we had. Unfortunately, Hot Shot was Karen’s one and only big hit of her career. She later on died about the age of 39-40, due to what was thought to be severe complications from an ulcer.
