"Hot (I Need To Be Loved, Loved, Loved, Loved)", also known as "Hot (I Need to Be Loved, Loved, Loved)", is a funk song by James Brown. Released as a single in December 1975, it reached #31 on the R&B chart.[1][2] It uses the main riff from the David Bowie song "Fame", released earlier the same year.[3] (Guitarist Carlos Alomar, who created the borrowed riff and was a co-writer on "Fame", was briefly in James Brown's band in the late 1960s.) The song also appeared as the lead track on Brown's 1976 album Hot.
