A song in the key of life

Do forgive me.

When Mary Ann Hobbs played this a month ago I thought how interesting it was that Stevie Wonder had done a version of Gangsta’s Paradise, presumably on the basis that he rated the song highly.

The awful truth dawned on me last night as I searched for the song online. This one is the original. It dates from 1976 – a year I assumed I knew well – and appears on Songs in the Key of Life
