Stevie Wonder’s classic “As” is our Song For Sunday this week.
A late one tonight but a funk/soul wonder nonetheless. Taken from one of Stevie Wonder’s “classic period” albums, As is a love song with power lyricism centred around Stevie loving the unnamed woman so much, it would take impossibilities for his love to die. And if the beautiful words aren’t enough to entice you to listen, perhaps the masterful performance of Herbie Hancock on the Rhodes will tickle your musical fancy. Whether you’re in love with someone, appreciate the power of strong imagery in lyrics or love the multiple layers of 70’s soul/funk, As is a masterpiece.
