1969 Song of the Day is- ‘My Cherie Amour’ by Stevie Wonder. The song was written by Stevie Wonder, Henry Cosby and Sylvia Moy. It was released as a single in January 1969 and went to #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was originally titled “Oh My Marsha’ about Stevie’s girlfriend when he attended the Michigan School for the Blind. The song had been finished by January 1968 but wasn’t released until a year later. These were the days when Stevie was certainly a star and had been very successful but before he became the superstar Stevie Wonder in the early 1970’s. In 1969 Wonder was a seasoned veteran but still a teenager at 18. He had his first #1 hit at the age of 13 with the single ‘Fingertips.” Wonder was good in the 60’s but as I mentioned in the 1970’s as he entered his 20’s he really came into his own. My Cherie Amour is one of my favorite Stevie 1960’s tunes.

  1. A wonderful song. This is where he perfects the musical bridge that became a hallmark in his songs. But Stevie never boxed himself in. He always evolved but he never got over the glory of a simple melody. I love that about him.

  2. The Eddie Murphy impersonation was always sort of a guilty pleasure, but obviously Stevie was a good sport. I was interested in this “girlfriend” of his in the blind school and looked him up thinking maybe they met and it was true love and they’ve been together ever since.
    But no….he’s been divorced twice, married three times, just like everybody else, lol !!!
