Some people are "album people." Some people are "mix people." Some people will love a certain band or artist's music until the day they die (they are called "fans"). After much thought, I have decided that I am just a song person. Not that I don't appreciate a well-crafted album or mix, and there are certainly a handful of artists that I gravitate to—but I find my greatest joy in the world of music is discovering a well-crafted song. A "magic song," you might say.
I kinda inadvertently started this mini-series on my blog, but I think I'd like to keep it going as a way of keeping track of all the best songs I discover. Of course, everything I post will distinctly be of my own taste and opinion, which isn't always very sophisticated. If a song resonates with me, I will probably love it. Many of the songs that "resonate" also bring back personal memories.
Now that I have somewhat explained myself, please enjoy one of my favorite songs of all time...
Old school Stevie Wonder just warms my heart. When I hear this song, I think of Spring '10—my pedestrian days—walking to campus everyday with my ipod. Winter was over. The sun was out. This song made me feel the goodness of it all.
