Hot Together is the title of the twelfth studio album by the Pointer Sisters released in November 1986 on the RCA label.


The eighth of the group's nine collaborations with producer Richard Perry, Hot Together represented a downturn in the Pointer Sisters' fortunes. The lead single, "Goldmine," charted well on Billboard's R&B and dance charts but only reached #33 on the Hot 100. A second single, the ballad "All I Know Is the Way I Feel," reached #93 on the Hot 100. A third release, "Mercury Rising," only managed an appearance on Billboard's R&B chart. The album's title track is more well-known, having been included in the soundtrack for the Mel Brooks' film Spaceballs and the Richard Dreyfuss film Stakeout; it was also a part of the NBA's late 1980s promotional campaign. Other songs of note include "Set Me Free" (co-written by "Neutron Dance" scribe Allee Willis and featured in the opening scene of Whoopi Goldberg's "Jumpin' Jack Flash") and "My Life" (co-written by actress/comedienne Sandra Bernhard). The album was remastered and issued on CD, with bonus tracks, in 2011 by Big Break Records.
