"Float On" is a 1977 hit song by the R&B/soul group The Floaters. The spoken verses combine two popular memes from the time, star signs and video and phone dating, in lines like Aquarius and my name is Ralph / Now I like a woman who loves her freedom. The song was co-written by James Mitchell of The Detroit Emeralds group.
Released from their self-titled debut album, it became one of the biggest singles of the year, spending six weeks at number one on the US Hot Soul Singles chart and was also a crossover hit, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. "Float On" also reached number one on the UK Singles Chart. The song was covered by hip hop band Stetsasonic on its album In Full Gear (1988).
