A true genius! He had a difficult time in the last few years but he did produce magic with the others in Earth, Wind & Fire.
Here is one of the best – Let’s Groove
Just heard this podcast about the song “Wichita Lineman”, one of the first songs that I loved.
The podcast documents the history of the song, how it was written and who had covered it. It turned me on to Â the songwriter Jimmy Webb who also wrote “MacArthur Park”.
Have you ever had a song that you couldn’t name? I was at a jazz soul concert in Tallinn months ago and the band played one song that I had known before but hadn’t known the artist of the name of the song. At the time I took a short video of the song but couldn’t make out the lyrics or the name of the song. I lacked the foresight to go up to the band and ask the name of the song at the time. It was only when I was reviewing the photos and videos from the trip that I came across the song again and listened to the video .
I listened to the lyrics and thought they sounded in the following order:
Loving without you
Living without you
Then again, it was sung by non-English native speakers but I thought such a great song couldn’t be that hidden. Could it? I searched Youtube, spotify, 7digital, Amazon but with no result.
While finding an old Stevie Wonder song, I found that he released a kind of Greatest Hits package in 2000. Â -Â At The Close Of A Century
I went through various songs until I found it. The song that I had been searching for. All I Do.
You’re welcome. 😉
