Released in 1973 from the album, Neither One of Us, the song spent four weeks at number one on the Soul Singles chart during the spring of that year. The song was also one of their biggest crossover hits, peaking at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, behind “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” by Vicki Lawrence. It was one of the group’s last hits with Motown before leaving for Buddah Records. It also won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.
Stevie Wonder is one of my favorite artists of all time. I’ve seen Stevie at least 6 or 7 times and he just keeps getting better and better. He will definitely be a reoccurring theme in my posts. I’ve got some Stevie stories…but I’ll save them for future posts. For now, I’ll just appreciate this beautiful ad.
Btw, Tammi was looking good in that little bubble. It’s interesting to note the Motown slogan at the bottom, “The Sound of Young America”. They sure were.
