Stevie Wonder: My Cherie Amour is Released on May 31, 1969

Hello Everyone,

You know that I am beaming as I share this bit of history.  On May 31, 1969, My Cherie Amour written by Stevie Wonder, Sylvia Moy and Hank Cosby was released.  Story has it that the song was original titled "Oh My Marsha" for an ex-girlfriend of Stevie's but after the break-up he kept the song and changed the lyrics to My Cherie Amour and aren't we glad he did.

I really enjoy the lighthearted feel, sense of longing and innocence of the song.

La la la la la la, la la la la la la
My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour, distant as the milky way
My cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
You're the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine

In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street
I've been near you, but you never noticed me
My cherie amour, won't you tell me how could you ignore
That behind that little smile I wore
How I wish that you were mine

La la la la la la, la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la
Maybe someday, you'll see my face amoung the crowd
Maybe someday, I'll share your little distant cloud
Oh, cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
You're the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine

La la la la la la, la la la la la la
La la la la la la, la la la la la la

Take a look at a 1969 video of My Cherie Amour

Nostalgia, gotta love it.  Thank you Stevie for such an amazing song.

Ciao!

Prince Rogers Nelson: Happy Birthday to the Consummate Musician - Born June 7, 1958

"When you don't talk down to your audience, then they can grow with you. I give them a lot of credit to be able to hang with me this long, because I've gone through a lot of changes, but they've allowed me to grow, and thus we can tackle some serious subjects and try to just be better human beings, all of us."  --Prince

Prince inspired me in so many ways: musicianship, singer, artist integrity....I still can't grasp that he is no longer here with us.

My favorite Prince song is "With You" from his first studio album entitled For You, released April 7, 1978.   What's your favorite Prince song?

Here is a list of songs written by Prince but made famous by other people.

I leave you with Prince slaying the audience at the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Happy Birthday Prince.

Ciao!
