«That’s the Way (I Like It)» is a song that was written by H. W. (KC) Casey and Richard Finch, and recorded and published in 1975 by KC and the Sunshine Band for its second album. This song was considered to be rather risqué at the time because of the obvious meaning behind the title as well as its chorus with multiple «uh-huhs» and its verses.

The song is in natural minor.»That’s the Way (I Like It)» became the band’s second number-one hit in the Billboard Hot 100, and it is one of the few chart-toppers in history to hit number one on more than one occasion during a one-month period, as it did between November and December 1975. This song topped the American pop chart for one week, and then it was replaced by «Fly, Robin, Fly» by the Silver Convention. «That’s the Way (I Like It)» returned to number-one for one more week after «Fly, Robin, Fly» completed three weeks at the top. «That’s the Way (I Like It)» also spent one week at number-one in the soul singles chart.
