Today Is the 21st of September, which means it may be time to listen and delve into the Earth, Wind & Fire classic smash hit.
But do you remember why the band happened to chose the 21st as the date for the song? Many assume it has to do with the seasons changing September 21 is the first day of Autumn. It happens to be the international day of peace. The simple reality is that it rhymes nicely..
This tune Is full of funky groove news hooks, octave guitar sounds and bass licks, silky slick keyboards segments, along with a singalong melody, Salsa horn sections and a crispy chord pattern.
“September” was included as a new song on the band’s Best Of Earth, Wind & Fire and cracked the top 10 when released in 1978. In the following 42 years, this energetic bundle of joy packed with musical punches has managed to take on a life of its own, with multiple major motion pictures, Television placements, and is a wedding song favorite.
Like a recurring Christmas classic that comes around every year, its specific “21st night of September” reference has led to an annual virtual celebration, including a new remix debuting today on the band’s YouTube channel. https://youtu.be/Gs069dndIYk
