The very first album I ever bought was Stevie Wonder’s “Talking Book”. The album, released in 1972, had brilliant songs — the super fabulous funky “Superstition,” the very cool “You are the Sunshine of my Life,” and the wonderful “I Believe (When I Fall in Love with You It Will Be Forever)”. But my most favorite song on the album is “Blame it On the Sun”. Wonder’s keyboard work, his voice, the amazing chord progressions rocked my world then, and they still do.

I found this very cool version of Diana Krall singing it at at tribute concert to Wonder. And a less cool version of Wonder singing with Tom Jones (it was the latter who made it less cool. Wonder is a genius and I wish it could have been a solo performance).
