leejohnson's current selection is:
Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours
by Stevie Wonder
#1970

Let's have a few bits and pieces from good old "SongFacts" shall we? I'm a little short of time right now:

_____________________________________________________

Wonder wrote this with Motown songwriters Lee Garrett and Syreeta Wright, along with his mother Lula Mae Hardaway. Garrett and Wright also worked with Wonder on the '[Detroit] Spinners' song "It's A Shame", and Wonder was briefly married to Wright. Like Stevie Wonder, Lee Garrett is also blind. They first met at the "Michigan School for the Blind". In this song, the singer is returning to his girl and putting himself at her mercy. It's a similar sentiment to the 'Temptations' song "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", as the guy probably did something stupid - like cheat on her - but is now willing to become a crying puddle of mush if she will just take him back. Peter Frampton took this song to No. 18 [US] with his 1977 version. Other artists to cover this song include Elton John, Chaka Khan, Michael McDonald, Jermaine Jackson, 'The String Cheese Incident', and the 'California Raisins'. Syreeta Wright, who co-wrote the song, recorded it using her stage name 'Syreeta'. This song featured in the films "Now And Then" (1996) and "You've Got Mail" (1998).

Chart-wise, for Stevie it got to No. 3 for two weeks in the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart during August 1970, and to No. 15 in the UK Singles listings, again for two weeks, in the same month and year.

Born in 1954, leaving education by 1972, 'glam' was my thing, "Ziggy" Bowie my hero. I was even the only guy in my town with the haircut (though not the carrot red colouring!). Therefore every seventh selection is a Bowie track.
