TELL IT!
LOVE this song. Even though the subject gets weighty, have to sing or dance along whenever it comes on.

I am glad that I was around when GREAT music was made by GREAT musicians. Stevie Wonder is the MAN!; the lyrics to his songs really mean something - wish I could hear JESUS CHILDREN (one of his Classics).

Thank you Stevie, YOU ARE THE MAN!!! Stevie's music is timeless.
What an awesome fusion of music and emotion! Thank you, Stevie Wonder.
what a great song. i love the one keyboard part--it sounds like an old Weather Report song
i agree, pmdunn21. timeless is a great word to describe this song.
It's hard to believe this song is more than 30 years old. It's still relevant and a classic, timeless song -- one of Stevie's best.
Classic Stevie! This song is timeless.
