Stevie Wonder: Forjando su leyenda

Mi devoción por Stevie Wonder es clara y no la puedo ocultar. Él es el culpable de mi amor por la música y de haber podido disfrutar en su máxima intensidad de sentimientos y emociones que dificilmente se pueden describir con palabras. Este 13 de mayo cumplirá 60 años. Una edad que muchos marcarían como barrera implacable y tránsito a un retiro digno tras tantos años de profesión, pero nada más lejos de la realidad.
Stevie sigue activo, continúa década a década forjando su leyenda; el de un músico que ha sabido permenecer más de 50 años en un lugar destacado en el mundo de la música, un imán que ha conseguido que artistas de todos los géneros y edades se hayan sentido atraidos e influenciados por su magnetismo. Como publico en el blog dedicado a este genio, "Stevie es un regalo de los dioses", sólo él puede contar en cada década con canciones que atravesarán la barrera del tiempo y permanecerán vivas y eternas para disfrute de las futuras generaciones. Un horizonte abierto con espacios por escribir y en el que Stevie Wonder seguirá resistiéndose a no formar parte de él. Sus futuros trabajos en solitario con su álbum homenaje a su madre fallecida en el 2006, "The Gospel Inspired By Lula" y "Through The Eyes Of Wonder", al igual que un álbum de duetos con Tony Bennett trataran de mostrar a un Stevie Wonder muy vivo y activo, como así se puede comprobar en sus directos que no paran desde hace varios años hasta la actualidad. Un ejemplo lo podemos degustar en este video interpretando "As" de su gira LIVE AT LAST.


Letra
As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
Just as hate knows love's the cure
You can rest your mind assure
That I'll be loving you always

As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older every day
Just as all that's born is new
You know what I say is true
That I'll be loving you always

(Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky)
Always
(Until the ocean covers every mountain high)
Always
(Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea)
Always
(Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream)

Did you know that true love asks for nothing
No no her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

Just as time knew to move on since the beginning
And the seasons know exactly when to change
Just as kindness knows no shame
Know through all your joy and pain
That I'll be loving you always

As today I know I'm living
But tomorrow could make me the past
But that I mustn't fear
For I'll know deep in my mind
The love of me I've left behind
'Cause I'll be loving you always

(Until the day is night and night becomes the day)
Always
(Until the trees and seas just up and fly away)
Always
(Until the day that eight times eight times eight is four)
Always
(Until the day that is the day that are no more)
Did you know you're loved by somebody
(Until the day the earth starts turnin' right to left)
Always
(Until the earth just for the sun denies itself)
I'll be lovin you forever
(Until dear mother nature says her work is through)
Always
(Until the day that you are me and I am you)
Always
(Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean severs every mountain high)
Always mm mm

We all know sometimes life hates and troubles
Can make you wish you were born in another time and space
But you can bet your lifetimes that and twice it's double
That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed
So make sure when you say you're in it, but not of it
You're not helpin' to make this earth
A place sometimes called hell
Change your words into truths
And then change that truth into love
And maybe our children's grandchildren
And their great grandchildren will tell
I'll be loving you until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
