Trívia: “Back in The Day” é a música com maior número de batidas por minuto no álbum. Foi cotada para segundo single enquanto o álbum era gravado.


What we’re gonna do right here is go back
Way back, back into time

Yeah, yeah-yeah

(Donny Hathaway, Leena Horne)
(Miss Aretha, [The Real Thing] James Brown, Billie Holiday)
(Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Louis Armstrong)
(Minnie Riperton, Otis Redding, Etta James)

Back in the day
They used to say
Play that song, get it goin’ and the band played
And still today
You hear us say
Play that song all night long, Mr. DJ
Though times have changed
It’s still the same
We all need a minute to get away
So let it go
And feel the flow
If you got soul let the world know

We’re gonna set the mood (set the mood off right)
Gonna go back
To an old-school groove (go back to an old school groove)
Gonna rewind, to another time
When the originators, innovators were alive, yeah

Here we say now
So break out the Marvin Gaye
Your Etta James
Your Lady Day
And Coltrane
Turn up your 45’s
Bring back to life the sound and vibe of yesterday
Open your mind
Enjoy the ride
Get out tonight
And grab that soul train

Take it back, take it
Back in the day, back in the day
Oh baby
Back in the day, back in the day
Won’t you take me back?
Back in the day, back in the day
I’ll do it
Back in the day, back in the day

Ohh yeah

Y’all remember back in the day, you dig
Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald

Yeah
Now “Chain Of Fools” and “Respect”
Was the anthem of a woman Aretha said
“What’s Going On”, “Let’s Get It On”
Such classic songs, don’t forget them
Though times have changed
They still remain
My inspiration every day
So give it up
For the ones
Who came before
Opened up that door

We’re gonna set the mood
(we’re gonna) (set the mood)
Gonna go back to an old school groove
(go back) (to an old school groove)
Gonna rewind to another time
(rewind) (another time)
When the originators, innovators were alive

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James
Your Lady Day, and Coltrane
Turn up your 45’s, bring back to life
The sound and vibe of yesterday
(the sound and vibe of yesterday)
Open your mind, enjoy the ride,
Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Take it back, take it
Back in the day, back in the day
Oh baby
Back in the day, back in the day
Won’t you take me back?
Back in the day, back in the day
I’ll do it
Back in the day, back in the day

So get up, relive it
Gotta let yourself go
Give up your praise
Come celebrate
Just get up, get on it
Get yourself on the floor
Don’t back away (don’t back away)
Come celebrate
We’re gonna celebrate, yeah

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James
Your Lady Day, and Coltrane
Turn up your 45’s, bring back to life
The sound and vibe of yesterday
(the sound and vibe, alright yeah)
Open your mind, enjoy the ride,
Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Takin’ back in the day, day
Back in the day, back in the day
Back in the day, back in the day
Back in the day, back in the day
Back in the day, back in the day

Oh baby, I’ll do it
Oh baby, ohh yeah yeah woah woah yeah
