One of my all time favorite songs. As I look at their album cover I am in awe of how skinny they were. When male musicians had to have a muscular build is exactly when the quality of music went downhill.

Love Earth Wind and Fire. My mom you to blast us out of bed bright and early Saturday to clean the house before we take a road trip. Nothing but fun times we went everywhere she could think of. She would fry chicken load up on the fruits and drinks . Don't forget potato salad and just drive
