Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “hide/hiding/hidden.” 

I FINALLY get to use a song by the Kings of old school music from the 70s and 80s – Earth Wind & Fire!
Written by Skip Scarborough as You Can’t Hide Love, it was the debut single of Creative Source in 1973. Earth, Wind & Fire included it on their live album Gratitude in1975. Can’t Hide Love was released as a single in 1976 and reached #11 on the US Soul and #39 on US Pop Singles charts. Their version was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s).
Fun Fact: The nominees for the 1977 Best Arrangement for Voices were:
  • Starland Vocal BandAfternoon Delight Lyrics
  • QuireAin’t Misbehavin’
  • Queen Bohemian Rhapsody Lyrics
  • Earth Wind & FireCan’t Hide Love Lyrics
  • Singers Unlimited I Get Along Without You Very Well

Even though Earth Wind & Fire and Queen would reign at or near the top of music charts around the world and both groups had released ground-breaking hits by 1977, it was the Starland Vocal Band who walked off with the award for Afternoon Delight. 😀

I was surprised… and bummed to find there is no decent video of Can’t Hide Love available so I went with the Vevo original recording.
