“Good morn or evening friends, here’s your friendly announcer, I have serious news to pass on to everybody. What I’m about to say could be the the world’s disaster, could change your joy and laughter to tears and pain. It’s that love’s in need of love today; don’t delay, send yours in right away. Hate’s going round breaking many hearts, stop it please, before it’s gone too far..”
Stevie Wonder, Love’s in Need of Love Today
It’s mid-May, the sun is shining, birds are singing and I’m revising… However, this lead me to rediscover my Stevie Wonder albums = instant smiles.
Love’s in Need of Love Today is a song which reminds me of many things- playing it in the car while driving around Windsor and singing along to it with some of my R.S class before we took a full school assembly about our fundraising for the local Neonatal ward. Isn’t She Lovely is another favourite of mine, memories of Dad singing it very loudly come back. If it’s Magic has to be one of my all time favourite songs though; it’s just so beautiful. The harp is hypnotic and the lyrics are gorgeous 🙂
“If it’s magic, why can’t it be everlasting? Like the sun that always shines…”
Stevie Wonder, If it’s Magic
