Songs In The Key Of Life - Stevie Wonder

The Greatest Album. Ever (1976)

As this album approaches its fortieth anniversary, somebody needs to shout:  SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE IS THE GREATEST ALBUM.  EVER.

The songwriting.  The musicianship, The production.  Everythang.

Twenty-One incredible songs.  The mega-hits:  Isn't She Lovely, I Wish, Sir Duke.  The songs that earned recognition well after the initial release:  Love's In Need Of Love Today (my favorite track), Pastime Paradise (the driving hook in Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise), If It's Magic, As, Ebony Eyes.  The deeper cuts...

Their power, both individually and as a collection.  Bewitching.  Bedazzling.  Beautiful.
