30 Songs in 30 Days, Day 21: A Song That You Listen to When You're Happy

Song: "September"
Writers: Maurice White, Al McKay and Allee Willis
Band: Earth, Wind & Fire

When we're happy at our house, we dance. Funk is my favorite dance music and Earth, Wind & Fire is as good as it gets. The hard part is picking just one song! "September" brought EWF to a whole new audience when Gap used the song in an ad campaign. I actually had a temp job with Gap's online store at the time and got to see the ad before its general release.

Speaking of ads, I can't believe I neglected to include this video with my Day 18 post. The following is my favorite commercial ever.


I hope you'll join us for the "30 Songs in 30 Days" challenge, inspired by the tumblr list. Our 30 Songs roster:

Day 22: A Song That You Listen to When You're Sad


  1. September is such a strong song that almost ANY version is fun. Nan is partial to the Sisqo/Vitamin C version!

  2. I prefer the Earth, Wind and Fire version...I like funk. It's grown on me in the past 15 or 20 years because Dwayne LOVES it.

    I have never seen that commercial before and it is awesome.

    1. Funk was the collateral damage when the world turned against disco. Funk is similar but sooooooooo much better.
