Sister Sledge perform Lost In Music on the Dutch television show Toppop (1979). The song was written and produced by Nile Rodgers (guitar) and Bernard Edwards (bass) from the band Chic.

Lost In Music, from the hit album We Are Family (1979), is arguably the very best song Sister Sledge ever recorded. Its lead vocals are sung by ever glamourous Joni Sledge (Philadelphia, PA, 13 September 1956), and they are some of the finest, if not the absolute finest vocals of her career. Her infectious ‘Tadadada tada tada tada da da…’ at 3:22 is legendary already.

The beautiful Joni Sledge died from yet unknown causes on 10 March 2017 in her home in Phoenix, Arizona. She was sixty years old.
