Ell:

Here you go my friend:

MIGHTY MIGHTY

Walk around, why wear a frown
Say little people, try to put you down
What you need, a helpin' hand
All the strength, at your command

How's ya faith? Cause ya faith is you
Who you kiddin', to yourself be true
Spread ya love, for a brighter day
For what ya search, you'll find a way

We are people, of the mighty
Mighty people of the sun
In our hearts lies all the answers
To the truth you can't run from

Eagle flies, every seven days
Still cryin the blues, all about ya pay
What ya gonna do? Bout your living thang
Will ya make it better, or just complain

Everday is real, don't run from fear
Cause better days are very near
There are times when you are bound to cry
One more time, head to the sky

We are people, of the mighty
Mighty people of the sun
In our hearts lies all the answers
To the truth you can't run from

I think the part you're thinking about is where they say "Ahhhhhhh Yes Sir, ooh ooh, ooh ooh"

Hey guys, just found this treat. A live medley from the early 1970's when they still had a female singer. Enjoy!

To J. Nelson:

You're welcome my friend! I was going thru some youtube clips and found that little gem. They always looked like that had a blast performing live. Jessica added a whole other level to their vocals too.

Don't know if any of you have seen these clips, but here's The Elements at the original California Jam in 1974. Check out the outfits, off the chain! :-)

Yearnin' Learnin - I was listening to the original again. Does it sound a bit strange to anyone? I know White sings lead here, but his voice seems different than in other songs. Thoughts?

Ell Island says:
Verdine - Another question I had - does anyone know of any interviews with Verdine that asks about his incredible stamina and enthusiasm on stage? I'd love to know what vitamins he takes, if any!

Shining Star says:
Hey Ell:

I think White is just changing his vocal expression in the song. As far as i know, there's no effects being used other than him.

Shining Star says:
Verdine is a high energy guy, on the dvd "Shining Stars: The Offical Story of Earth, Wind and Fire" he and Maurice talk about that. He was given the nickname "Fire" due to his high energy level. I'll try and find some interviews of his were he discusses it.

Thanks. Wanted to know if anyone noticed a difference in sound.

Thanks!

You bet, i did notice the change as well. Another thing, when they do that song live, Bailey takes the lead on the 2nd verse, however, he doesn't do so on the album.

Hi Ell

Here's a great interview with Verdine talking about a lot of different things including performing live.

Here's a nice interview about Earth, Wind and Fire's live shows with Brian Auger. It's pretty cool and he has stories about others as well.

Which You and I? I think this was the only title that was for two songs. Love is Life was a remake of their song.
