Of all the songs released for this special project, I'm really behind AJFOne23's choice of Stevie Wonder's "My Cherie Amour". This 1969 Motown Hit written by Wonder, Silvia Moy and 'Funk Brother' session musician, Henry 'Hank' Cosby, in my opinion, is among one of the top bona fide love ballads worthy of the honor. This truly gorgeous ballad warms the heart like not many other songs can. Full of contemplative longing and boyish innocence, Wonder paints a loving tribute to the magic of the fairer sex and how their very being can stir so much love and anticipated bliss that comes with falling and being in love. From the whimsical flute intro to the accompanying rhythm guitar and romantic string arrangements, "My Cherie Amour" is an alluring, poetic and musical journey through the mind's eye of a young man's first love....
In the spirit of this song, I'd like to wish all of you who make those of us that can relate to "My Cherie Amour", a very 'Happy Valentine's Day' filled with fun, laughter and just being with the one you hold most dear to your heart!
