Stevie Wonder: ‘Overjoyed’

Realmente podría llenar una lista bien larga con mis temas favoritos de Stevie Wonder, supongo que a muchos de vosotros os pasará lo mismo.

Acabo de ver el vídeo de Overjoyed del álbum In Square Circle de 1985, que ya no recordaba. Para mí, Overjoyed es uno de los grandes temas de amor de Stevie Wonder. La letra es genial, ¿hay algún artista que haya escrito mejores letras que Stevie Wonder? Y el sonido, cómo la canta y la siente, totalmente inolvidable:

Enlace al vídeo.

Over time, I’ve building my castle of love
Just for two, though you never knew you were my reason
I’ve gone much too far for you now to say
That I’ve got to throw my castle away

Over dreams, I have picked out a perfect come true
Though you never knew it was of you I’ve been dreaming
The sandman has come from too far away
For you to say come back some other day

And though you don’t believe that they do
They do come true
For did my dreams
Come true when I looked at you
And maybe too, if you would believe
You too might be
Overjoyed, over loved, over me

Over hearts, I have painfully turned every stone
Just to find, I had found what I’ve searched to discover
I’ve come much too far for me now to find
The love that I’ve sought can never be mine

And though you don’t believe that they do
They do come true
For did my dreams
Come true when I looked at you
And maybe too, if you would believe
You too might be
Overjoyed, over loved, over me

And though the odds say improbable
What do they know
For in romance
All true love needs is a chance
And maybe with a chance you will find
You too like I
Overjoyed, over loved, over you, over you

Novedades en música R&B

A través de un artículo aparecido en la web HiphopRnbSoul.com se llega a una lista de álbumes de música R&B que han aparecido o aparecerán durante este mes de mayo.

Lo más destacado de la lista es lo nuevo de Maysa y Howard Hewett que os mencioné hace unos días. Como también, la segunda entrega de las remezclas de temas clásicos de Motown, el nuevo disco de Amel Larrieux titulado Lovely Standards o la reaparición de Tank con Sex, Love & Pain que está gustando muchísimo.
