Music · Earth, Wind + Fire · Shining Star

Shining Star (Earth, Wind & Fire song)
A moment last week caused me to send this to a friend, as an uplift.
You're a shining star
No matter who you are
Shining bright to see
What you could truly be
This is the live version from the 'Gratitude' album, which was one of the first LPs I ever brought, played to death and still love today.

'Shining Star' was one of Earth, Wind and Fire's biggest hits, though not in the UK, where their fame came a bit later. You may recognise it from samples though, or even from 'Seinfeld'!

Listen, after the jump plus bonus 'Africano' also from 'Gratitude'.

  1. What deeply angers me is that NOBODY!! Has brought up the lyrics not heard on the original. "The shining star, lucky you
    The sinful redeeming shall be true" and "Future roads for you to pass
    Love to watch your mug past" what's the story behind where these lyrics came from, or why it was taken out. Somebody help this brotha out!!
