"Rewind"- Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours by Stevie Wonder

One of my favorite songs of all time! Everything on this song from Stevie's vocals to the background vocals to the horn section to using mail to create a love song is just perfect. This song is so great that even President Obama danced to it at his inauguration. Stevie Wonder is a musical genius!

The soul song was released on Motown's Tamla label in 1970. It spent six weeks on top of the R&B charts and peaked at number three on the Pop charts. For Stevie, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" presented several firsts: the first record he produced on his own, first Grammy-nominated song and the first to include his female backup group with Lynda Tucker Laurence (who later became a member of The Supremes), Syreeta Wright (who co-wrote the song and was his wife), and Vanetta Fields.
