There aren't many songs out there that by simply mentioning title are capable of bringing a smile to my face... this is definitely one of them. I can't put a finger on it...Is it that snazzy rhythm guitar intro, laying the 'funky' down with a vigor that simply oozes uplifting?...could be!
Maybe it's Stevie's vocalizations, full of joyous conviction,..is that the heartbeat of it all?...that's a very strong possibility!!
Well, there's always that bombalicious, boogieful, fun loving 'Stevie Harmonica' that when blown, emits an electrifying surge of energy, lifting the spirit up a couple or four notches on the 'amazingly good vibe' scale.....Good gawd!...That's gotta be it !!!!
Whatever the reasons, surely the backing of bassist extraordinaire James Jamerson and the rest of the Funk Brothers crew round out a phenomenal and overall sound to this exhilarating musical arrangement. As much as Stevie Wonder's essence and energy permeate the song, it's hard to believe he himself didn't write it. That credit goes to a member of Berry Gordy's song writing team of 'Motown Hit Factory' writers by the name of Ron Miller along with the musical talents of Orlando Murden. Not a hard or particularly challenging song to play for RB3, but it sure feels good doing it, don't it?! :D
