I'm pretty fairly convinced that there can't possibly be a better song to start a chilly Monday morning with than the Blaze Shelter DJ Mix of Earth, Wind & Fire's "Fantasy." Akin to Dimitri from Paris's work on the classics used in his Playboy Mansion series, this is a re-edit, not a remix. And it's fucking perfect, (re)emphasizing EW&F's strongest points (of which there were certainly many), extending it a bit, and just generally making it a soulful dance nirvana. Every song should be this transcendent and triumphant.
