This was one of the last Stevie Wonder songs to feature the Funk Brothers -Motown’s back up musicians- from this point on Stevie played most of the instruments himself. The co-writer of the song Syreeta Wright was married to Stevie at the time- their marriage was a brief one -18 months.
Near the start of his incredible run through a good chunk of the 70s where everything he touched was magic.
