30 Days of Songs: Day 10

2011/03/11

Day 10-a song from your favorite concert
Back in June ’09, my parents bought me a ticket to see the incomparable Stevie Wonder in concert, and the first song he performed was this.

This was a special request of Leo, a terminally-ill 18-year-old and Wonder’s special guest onstage all evening long. Wonder said he’d never performed the song live before, and it showed a bit early on. But the 33+ years of rust fell right off. This being one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE SONGS, I wondered how the show could get any better.

And it did. 2/3 the way through the show, I texted my folks “BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER.”

Tomorrow: I have to try to recall when MTV actually played videos.
