#281: Music of My Mind by Stevie Wonder

1.25.2012


Music of My Mind by Stevie Wonder (1972)

Favorite Track(s): "Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)" and "I Love Every Little Thing About You" and "Happier Than the Morning Sun" and "Girl Blue" and "Seems So Long" and "Evil"

Thoughts: I loooooove Stevie Wonder. His songs are like musical sunshine.

It's about time he showed up, but I applaud the List that he's been absent so long because his albums belong so close to #1! My parents instilled my love for Stevie from a young age, and I have inherited many of his vinyl records from their collection. He masters so many instruments, he writes such sweet love songs AND super funky songs, and his voice is one-of-a-kind.

I need to do a post of my top 5 favorite harmonica players, because he is definitely one of them. Well, it would actually have to be top 3, because I think there are really only 3 of them: Wonder, Dylan, Springsteen. There! I did the post.

To the album!

First, the cover is fabulous. Second, if someone ever puts "I Love Every Little Thing About You" or "Happier Than the Morning Sun" on a mix for you or tells you those songs make them think of you, you are a very lucky person. Just sublime.

I mean, I could just bask in this 70s piano/harmonica/female backing vocals/funky bass/organ light forever. FOREVER. So I also need to do a post about my favorite pop piano players. Spoiler alert: it's basically Wonder, Joel, John, McCartney, Lennon, Springsteen, Mitchell--ok, this isn't going to work. Too many.

Is This Better Than Help!?:



Yes.
