Thank Funk It’s Friday – 2010.09.10

Ba de ya de ya de ya – Thank Funk It’s Earth Wind & Fire Day!

Earth Wind & Fire released ‘September’ at the end of 1978 and it became one of their biggest singles in both the US and the UK.

The band formed in 1969 and released their first album two years later with an astonishing ten man lineup. Throughout the 70s the band became more popular with each new album and successful single. Their first Number 1 was ‘Shining Star’ in 1975 but it wasn’t until the release of ‘September’ that the UK finally took notice. It was the first of their three biggest singles and those songs comprise this week’s EWF-filled TFIF mix.

01. September
02. Boogie Wonderland
03. Let’s Groove

Do you remember dancing in September when there never was a cloudy day?..
