EDITORS’ NOTES

"Fantasy" has become one of Earth, Wind & Fire's calling cards, thanks to its melancholic groove and beautifully aching lyrics. Like much of the band's eighth studio album, the song was partially inspired by Maurice White's travels in South America, and is infused with slinky Afro-Brazilian touches. Snatches of tunes by Brazilian superstars Toninho Horta and Milton Nascimento drift through the album's sultry grooves, while Latin jazz icon Eumir Deodato adds a delicate orchestral arrangement to the lilting "I'll Write a Song For You.”
