Saturday Single No. 314

Time, as occasionally happens here, is short this morning. A few tasks laid aside for the end of the week and for the end of the season call me. And I think the Texas Gal – who will spend the day studying – has a brief errand or two to add to my list.

So, to keep domestic harmony intact (and to maximize my chances of watching both the Minnesota Gophers’ and Oregon Ducks’ football games today), I’ve rummaged through the fifty or so songs on the mp3 shelves that have something to do with Saturday.

And I found a pleasantly funky outing from Earth, Wind & Fire. As a single, “Saturday Nite” went to No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 and to No. 4 on the Billboard R&B chart around the time that 1976 changed into 1977. The album version of “Saturday Nite” from Spirit runs a little longer and it’s today’s Saturday Single.

    Ahh, yes. The real E, W, & F from back before they blew apart and became basically a cover band of themselves from their glory days.

    Nice work on a busy Saturday, whiteray.

    Now all you U.S. Echoes in the Wind fans: don’t forget to vote on Tuesday. This one is a big deal. We’ve got a real choice this time; don’t squander it!
