“People hand in hand…have I lived to see the milk & honey land…where hate’s a dream & love forever stands…or is this a vision in my mind?”
Last night on CBS there was an all star tribute to Stevie Wonder. It got me thinking about all of the incredible music he has made over the many decades of his career. So many phenomenal songs. He truly is a wonder.
When it came down to Classic Ish Tuesday I decided to choose 2 of Stevie’s songs. It took me hours. I got caught up going through all of the songs, trying to choose. Should I just go with Ribbon In The Sky? These Three Words? All I Do? If You Really Love Me? Lately? Knocks Me Off My Feet? You And I? So much to choose from.
I love Stevie so much & I can truly say I don’t have just one favorite song. I could post whole albums. So finally I just had to force myself to choose & I decided on Visions & Rocket Love. Two beautiful songs. Both incredibly written & sung. Just awesome. But please go through Stevie’ s whole discography. It is mind-blowing & soul stirring. With lyrics like, “You took me riding in your rocket & gave me a star…then at a half a mile from heaven you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world”
For now start with Visions & Rocket Love:
