1. That was the second 100% that Stevie had to offer
Edited on Wed Aug-05-09 05:34 PM by Amerigo Vespucci
Marvin and Stevie were similar...Smokey pretty much stayed Smokey over the course of his career (and for Smokey, that was more than enough), but Marvin and Stevie both offered a catalog of pop / love songs unequaled in the history of music, THEN had almost a SECOND career of music that was perhaps more mature, less about being young and in love and holding hands...because adults either look back FONDLY on that kind of thing or resent it because in junior high / high school. love just flat-out passed them by... the thing about "Ribbon In The Sky" that ASTOUNDS me is NOT that Stevie wrote it.

It's the fact that the guy who wrote "My Cherie Amour"...a song that chokes me up to THIS VERY DAY...wrote it.
