“That’s The Way Of The World” – That’s The Way of the World
This landmark album was created from the 1975 movie of the same name, starring Harvey Keitel and the band, who portrayed a fictionalized version of themselves referred to as “The Group.” Although the movie was a commercial flop, EWF, however, managed to gain its increasing popularity. Not bad.
“Fantasy” – All ‘N All
Finding your destiny, that’s what the song is all about. In a typical manner from Maurice White, he would create lyrics full of a powerful message, and he would then pair this with a ferocious beat good for dancing. That’s what “Fantasy” is made out of.
“Shining Star” – That’s The Way of the World
This party anthem is definitely the single that keeps the band rolling and reaching the pitstop of success. “Shining Star” allowed the rock band to shine like a star— as it went on and reach the top spot of Billboard 100 and Billboard Hot Soul Songs chart. The song bore all the heart and soul of the group, who always look forward to creating meaningful songs, rather than the usual hollow ones.
