Oh yes! Love it. Earth, Wind & Fire is great and the ladies of The Emotions were just an excellent addition to this performance. I have always just loved this song. It always gets my spirits up. And as Shae said, Phillip Bailey is amazing and so is Maurice White. A true classic! And I love Mint Condition surely takes me back. Happy weekend to you! :)

You can't beat Earth, Wind & Fire. The tops! I love The Emotions, they were my ladies back in the day but are they a band?

Hagar's Daughter 12 December, 2008 07:35

Earth, Wind, & Fire is one of my favorite bands. Great choices as always.

I cannot stress it enough, everyone should have a little MINT in their life! :)

All three pics are on it. Happy OSF.

Oh, Regina, thanks so much for the Boogie Wonderland!!!! You are so right - those costumes were "bitchen" and this was disco at it's best!

I went with one of my very favorite songs ever: The Turtles singing Happy Together in 1967

Happy OSF.

Mint Condition was a tight outfit.

JohnH985 13 December, 2008 10:05

Three good choices, but I lean more towards War, always liked them.

SjP 14 December, 2008 00:45

Oh my...Slipping Into Darkness! Now that takes me back to when I was young, dumb, and having so much fun! Great picks!

Vivrant Thang 14 December, 2008 14:42

Very nice picks!

You already know how I feel about EWF. Favorite band ever. Hands down.

I figured Mint Condition wold be a popular choice - for good reason. I was happy to spend my bday with them this year.

iriegal 15 December, 2008 23:03
