Earth, Wind & Fire founder Maurice White did the lion's share of the songwriting for the group, but he was always receptive to songs from outside writers, which resulted in some of EW&F's biggest hits, including "After The Love Has Gone
" and "Getaway."
"Getaway" was written by Peter Cor and Beloyd Taylor. Cor has composed music for a variety of movies and TV shows, and has had songs recorded by Lee Ritenour and Lakeside. Taylor, who passed away in 2014, recorded as a solo artist and composed a few other songs for Earth, Wind & Fire, including "Spread Your Love" and "Lady Sun."
