    For a double LP, Songs in the Key of Life is surprisingly stacked. Particularly love that one-two punch of "Sir Duke" and "I Wish."

    Also, I remember the first time I listened to this record, hearing the opening string part to "Pastime Paradise," and thinking "Why did iTunes skip to Coolio/Weird Al?" I think I went 15 years or so without knowing a Stevie song was the sample/basis for "Gangsta's Paradise."

    I felt this way about "Wild Wild West". Haha.

    I was proud of myself for knowing "Pastime Paradise" and then put this record on for the first time like "WHAT THE HELL!?"

    Ha! I didn't know that either. But now that I think about "Wild Wild West" (which I don't think I've heard since 1999), I do remember that sample.

    I just paused Songs in the Key of Life to listen to this song. That was a blast from the past.

    Happy 70th Stevie!

    Can't believe I never thought to look up Stevie on here before now. I've been devouring his classic period for the past 12 months. Ever since I was digging through my dads old vinyl and him mentioning Innervisions being one of his favourite ever albums, I haven't been able to get enough of him.

    That's fantastic. He really has a case for having the best '70s of any artist. That run from Signed, Sealed, Delivered to Hotter Than July is just insane

    I still haven't given those a proper listen, just the ones in between. Need to get on that.

    Love the conversation on the last page about finding the samples for Gangsta's Paradise and Wild Wild West on Songs in the Key of Life, I had the same OOOOOOOOH reactions when I heard them haha

    I've had people tell me you shouldn't count Signed in that run because he didn't have as much creative control and it was still very Motown. But he downright perfected Motown on it, so it kinda seems like the beginning of his run of perfection to me.
