Time To Get Manly 61: Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life

It's hard to believe that Songs in the Key of Life was record number eighteen for Stevie Wonder. Most artists, if they even manage to reach album eighteen, are comfortably settled into the "washed up and embarrassingly mediocre" period of their career. Not Mr. Wonder. He decided it was probably time to go ahead and release his best record ever. Which is saying a lot since he'd been virtually unstoppable since the release of 1972's Talking Book. Of course, all of this was just warm up and prep for Wonder's true masterpiece: "I Just Called to Say I Love You."
