Sly and the Family Stone Greatest Hits is one of my all time favorite albums. It's one I had on vinyl, cassette, CD, and it just now occurs to me that I also need it in digital format for my phone. Every single song on this album just makes me happy.
"Everybody is a Star" was written by Sylvester Stewart. This song was released as a B-Side to "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)," and it also charted and went to number one on the Billboard charts in 1970. I love the positive message of this song ... it is so uplifting.
Here is a 1973 live performance of this song from the old show Midnight Special ... and the performance is amazing. What beautiful voices!
