Also on the album Gratitude, “Sing a Song” spent a couple weeks on top of Billboard‘s Hot Soul Songs chart.
“GOT TO GET YOU INTO MY LIFE” (1978)
If there’s any band that can make a song from The Beatles their own, it’s Earth, Wind & Fire! The cover earned a GRAMMY for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s).
Do you remember that this track hit #1 on the U.S. R&B chart?
“BOOGIE WONDERLAND” (1979)
Earth, Wind & Fire teamed up with The Emotions for this quintessential disco track that hit #6 on the U.S. Hot 100.
“AFTER THE LOVE HAS GONE” (1979)
This slow jam won Earth, Wind & Fire another GRAMMY, but had to settle for the #2 spot on the charts due to the popularity of The Knack’s smash hit “My Sharona.”
“LET’S GROOVE” (1981)
Another decade, another gold-certified song! Earth, Wind & Fire kicked off the 1980s with one of their grooviest hits in their entire catalog!
