Soundtrack Q & A
Q: There is a song I'm looking for that was in ER. Jerry was sitting by the boom box... I think it was Sly and the Family Stone. Trudy told Jerry to turn it up and she walks away dancing. She bummed into Marese. Cary and Doctor Green were headed towards the counter when Cary told Jerry to turn down the music, Marese said wait and he sang the best part of the song, he then said now you can turn it down. Please help me find out what song this is? (from Anne in Reno)
