September 21st of any year is basically a national holiday in the Black community.

In September 1978, Earth, Wind & Fire members Maurice White, Al McKay and Allee Willis recorded September, releasing the record in November of the same year. The song reached number one on the US R&B chart, number eight on the Billboard Hot 100, and number three on the UK singles chart.

Willis simply described the happy nature of the song as “joyful music.”

And we couldn’t agree more.

Let’s go back to the late 70s shall we?
