I know we are in a serious situation, but I need a break from the gloom, doom and bullying by way of hoarding. Music has always been my refuge and watching those beautiful Italians singing to each other from their balconies reaffirmed my belief that music is the answer. So until the old normal returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
Most music critics and fans of Stevie Wonder will tell you the 1970’s was the best era of his career. It is hard to top winning three Album of the Year Grammy Awards like he did in that decade for “Innervisions” (1973), “Fulfillingness’ First Finale” (1974) and “Songs In The Key Of Life” (1976). I am a big fan of all his music, including those monumental years, but for me it is the songs from the 1960’s that I cannot get enough of. Today’s song is at the top of that list.
