I have not heard a song by this man that I didn't like.

If you get a chance, pick up "Songs In The Key Of Life." Many music critics say this is possibly the best recorded album ever in music history (I still say it's Nas's "Illmatic", but we've all got our opinions).

Just peep some of the musicians on that album:

Personnel
Deniece Williams - Vocals, Vocals (bckgr)
Minnie Riperton - Vocals, Vocals (bckgr)
Dorothy Ashby - Harp
George Benson - Guitar (Acoustic), Guitar, Vocals
Ronnie Foster - Organ
Herbie Hancock - Keyboards, Handclapping
Bobbi Humphrey - Flute
Quincy Jones - Music composition, Producer
and dozens more.

my favorite of all time...hands down..."Overjoyed" is my favorite song ever, too...Stevie has just got too much talent, I'm glad he's shared such creativity and musical prowess with the world for so many years

Everybody's got a thing
But some don't know how to handle it
Always reachin' out in vain
Accepting the things not worth having but

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out

They say your style of life's a drag
And that you must go other places
But just don't you feel too bad
When you get fooled by smiling faces but

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out...Yeah
When you get it off...your trip
Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah
Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama
Cause I'll be standing on the side
When you check it out...
When you get it off...your trip

Everybody needs a change
A chance to check out the new
But you're the only one to see
The changes you take yourself through

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
Don't you worry 'bout a thing, pretty mama
Cause I'll be standing in the wings
When you check it out

Don't you worry 'bout a thing
