Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.
This week’s theme is “Burn/Fire/Flame.”
Two in a row for EWF!
The lead single from the album All ‘N All, Serpentine Fire spent seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard R&B chart from December 3 1977. The single also crossed over to the Pop-oriented Billboard Hot 100 charts with a #13 peak.
Depending on which quoted article you reference, “Serpentine Fire” refers to:
– a yoga concept,
– Sexual energy,
– the “tongues of fire” which the Apostles (among others) received on the Day of Pentecost
However, most of us know Serpentine Fire as simply a great dance song and an Earth, Wind, & Fire classic!
