FlinterFile: Earth, Wind & Fire- Boogie Wonderland


In 1979, Earth Wind & Fire had a hit with a song they nearly passed on to another group. The song, written by Jon Lind and Allee Willis, was the counterpart of all the boogie-disco songs that were produced. The song was inspired by the movie Looking For Mr. Goodbar, which is about a woman who just lives to go to clubs in the evening. They started thinking about this kind of people and wrote the lyrics to this idea. The result was a boogie song with a lot of content, something Allee Willis was waiting for. They gave it to Maurice White, who actually thought of giving it to Curtis The Brothers, a group he produced. Willis and Lind kept asking White to sing the song with Earth, Wind & Fire, which he eventually did. The result? A number 6 hit in the US and number 4 in the UK. Enjoy
