Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Way Of The World" - Rated 337/500!
Earth, Wind & Fire's 1975 album,That's the Way of the World, was also the soundtrack for the motion picture of the same name. That's the Way of the World was the third bestselling pop album and the number one bestselling R&B album of 1975.
The album features the single "Shining Star" which was a #1 pop & R&B hit single in the U.S.
"Before he got into African thumb piano and otherworldly philosophizing, founder Maurice White was a session drummer at Chess studios (that's him on Fontella Bass' "Rescue Me"). EWF's seventh album is make-out music of the gods; its title track is one of funk's most gorgeous ballads." - www.rollingstone.com
"'Way of the World' was the title song of a little-seen movie starring Harvey Keitel as an idealistic label exec and EWF as the band he wants to produce, rather than white-bread pop acts. The movie was rereleased as Shining Star in 1977, and it flopped again. The song, however, was a Top Five R&B hit in 1975." - Rolling Stone
