Music Monday - Lead Foot Edition

I am a big fan of Earth, Wind & Fire and I'm not sure exactly when I became a fan. I have been sitting here trying to remember buying one of their records. I SAID RECORD...because that's what they were back then. I used to ride my bike to the store & buy 45's. Let me translate for young people. That is a single.

I know that I had Michael Jackson records. I know that I had Stevie Wonder records. I remember the 1st whole album that I bought with my Christmas money. But I really don't remember buying EWF records when I was younger. I know I loooved 'Serpentine Fire' & 'Devotion'. As I was thinking I thought well those came out when I was in elementary school. But even before I was allowed to ride my bike to the store, I went to the store with my parents & left the toy section to go look at records & buy 45's. So maybe I didn't appreciate them so much when their music was new. But I love them now.

I guess the fact that they have quite a few compilations & best of albums helped. I know that I was in my 30's looking all over for EWF in the record store. And my all time favorite song of theirs wasn't a single. It's not all over the internet like some of their songs. The reason I called this the Lead Foot Edition is because this is the song that I will blast in my car sing at the top of my off key lungs. And realize at the end of the song that I am speeding. (Kids don't try this at home, or on the highway. LOL)

On Your Face by EWF Sorry about that. The link should work now.

Over the past few years I've rediscovered my love for EWF. I don't know how or why but I forgot that they made some of the songs I loved as a kid. I'm shocked I don't have any of their stuff on my mp3 player. I'll have to rectify that soon. So what's the song that weighs down your foot? LOL.

You changed your background too I see.

I fixed the link and added the name of the song. I don't know why I overlooked them so much back then. Maybe small town Texas didn't let me hear them much. LOL

Yes, it's a work in progress, I'm going to be adding some things & changing the look of the blog. The background is just the beginning. I should probably change from blogspot, but we'll see.

I wonder how much money they made. Seems like there were a lot of members to split the take amongst.

I think that was common back then. Think of the original Commodores, Maze w/Frankie Beverly, Parliament/Funkadelic there are so many more wow I think I'll be online all day having a music flashback. LOL!

I appreciate EWF much more as an adult than I did as a child. I remember having tons of albums in the house when I was a kid. My mother loved the Supremes.
