I'm kind of a music junkie. And while I'd like to say I've found some great new band/artist that no one else has ever heard of, as of late, I have been obsessed with an older artist: Stevie Wonder. I have always liked soul music (I hope that is a PC term, I have no idea what else to call it), and singing it (or poorly attempting to), and so when I purchased Stevie Wonder's greatest hits album, I thought I would recognize all the songs. I have been pleasantly surprised, however, to find some new likes and even new favorites, particularly the song "As". Since I know you are intrigued, I recommend that you get the album (or at least just the song) from our favorite Russian website(SHHH!). As I have been listening to this song, I have actually been thinking about how it could have two interpretations, one relational and one religious, and although I couldn't quite put my finger on the latter, I finally figured it out. The version I have is apparently a shortened version, and here are additional lyrics I just found:

"We all know sometimes lifes hates and troubles
Can make you wish you were born in another time and space
But you can bet your life times that and twice its double
That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed
so make sure when you say you're in it but not of it
You're not helping to make this earth a place sometimes called Hell
Change your words into truths and then change that truth into love
And maybe our children's grandchildren
And their great-great grandchildren will tell
I'll be loving you always"

Sappy post out.



I put up the extended version for you.

It’s a good song but probably better shorter.

I dig the Stevie. Gad to see you’ve (re)discovered his music. Truly a genious of the last fifty years of popular music. I’m not familiar with “As”, but am a huge fan of “Sir Duke” and “Hey Love”. He’s got a phenomenal mind for music, and the voice to express whatever’s on it.

When Kelly worked at Border’s, she got all kinds of loot. The store recieved lots of promo cds and let the staff sift through them and bring some home. One day last year she brought home the Stevie greatest hits. Loved it. Although I am much more of a fan of the stuff before the 80s or so, on the whole.
