Add your Stevie favorites in the comments – and that’s an order.

It takes one to be one……
Sorry I am late getting to the party.
Congrats for being #1!
Hellooooooooooooo night owl!!
Okay. That ain’t right!
I am dancing over on the other post with iced tea in hand and I find you starting other party with Stevie Wonder.
Okay. In NY we are just getting started at 12:00…

I may just stay up until the sun comes up(NY style)……
You bet ;)
Now I am wide awake. I can’t go to sleep……Too Much Guitar Sound in My head……..over stimulated now…. ;)
Sorry Folks….pardon me. Please allow me for this Gem
Stevie Wonder and Sir Paul at the White House:
Ebony and Ivory
Goodnight, I promise ;)
I said that two hours ago.
The quintessential “Happy Birthday” Stevie Wonder song!!!
Did we capture “Isn’t She Lovely?” If not, here it is, in honor of our First Lady! Goodnight, TOD!
Yes, for our remarkable FLOTUS!!
With a Child’s Heart
Only Stevie could sing these lyrics…. ” Yes i got some candy kisses for your lips… yes I got some honeysuckle chocolate chippin’ kisses full of love for you.” I love this Stevie song. It just makes me happy and giddy every time I hear it.
I second and third that….
I choose all of the above as my favorite Stevie Wonder’s song.
I simply cannot choose….
Sweet sleep TOD’ville.
Castles in the Sand
Wrong video. I don’t know how that happened :D
Stevie — For Once In My Life
Stevie & Diana Ross
One of my favs — Georgie Woods used to play it every morning…
:-) :-) :-)
This is the GOP in a nutshell. Preach Stevie!!!
Golly Chips, we might need a Stevie Part Deux thread tomorrow night! So many good songs to remind the world about!
I’m pooped! Gotta roll!
This is for my TOD Family! Sweet dreams, sweet life!
What a GREAT THREAD :-)
Heck we need a Stevie thread for the rest of week!!…. :lol: Let me leave y’all night owls with this…. Nite TOD Peeps….always a joy to hang with y’all..
I don’t have a favorite Stevie Wonder song. I think it’s impossible to have just one because Stevie Wonder is genius and light years ahead of everyone. Chips and commenters already included some of my go to Stevie songs. But no Stevie collection is complete without these two songs.
Happy Birthday Stevie Wonder! Long May You Live and Long May You Reign.

Goooooooooood Morning everyone….
Good morning all. Busy day today…….Manna House (food pantry) day. Blessed day to all.
Good morning TODers, talking about sleeping like a baby…..
.My goodness, what a beautiful thread. I was literally serenaded to sleep. I really love Stevie Wonder. His music has and always will be a part of my soul. I woke up singing “Ribbon In The Sky.” Such a beautiful song, it makes me cry. Anyone who can compose that and many other songs that just touch your soul is truly a “genius.”
Thank you one and all for giving me one of the most memorable nights in music.
This will be my “go to thread,” whenever life gets a little bit heavy and Repugs get more stupider(if there is such a word)…..which we all know they surely will. But we’ve got each other, this thread and our dear Ms. Chips.
It is a beautiful thing when you wake up with lots of love and a song in your heart.
Have a peaceful day everyone. We are in GOOD hands.
Good Morning….Oh, my goodness, how smug they are on tee vee this morning,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,what an incompetent, sinister, bumbling, disconnected, scandalous, did I say incompetent 10 times, administration we have……the contempt is just dripping off their fangs……..Talking about incompetence…ya think that if Teaparty is in your name ya might be associated with a political party rather than a group that serves tea to the poor…..or do ya think that journalists whining about my, my, my rights, ya might consider the rights of the American people to be safe as important also…..and Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi just seems to be ho hum now…..
Actually they seem more unhinged at this point than smug because they know they don’t really have anything at the end of the day. They were mad that he corrected them at the presser and AP put out this shiny new toy for them to attack PBO and Holder with.
Between the Benghazi, IRS and AP stories, PBO and Eric Holder will be still standing strong in the administration 6 months from now. And the media’s credibility will be a few notches lower (if that’s even possible).
I used the word smug b/c it is inconceivable to them that they have not achieved a “gotcha” moment for PBO….Their contempt for PBO consumes them to their core so therefore they are unable to consider there are two sides to a story…….personally, if as reported, what IRS and DOJ did was correct…..If you have Teaparty in your name you are not a social welfare organization and I don’t want my taxes subsidizing you…..and if national security is jeopardized b/c someone is leaking information, I call that treason and don’t care who’s phone records are subpoenaed to protect me and my family from harm…..the media’s reaction is b/c they are PO b/c they have been called out not only for being disrespectful and irresponsible during PBO’s administration but they have the lives of thousands on their heads for their irresponsible reporting that helped get us into two irresponsible wars……..all this crap is being used to divert attention from PBO’s agenda…pure and simple…..and will he stand tall..you bet….will Eric Holder stand tall, absolutely…….I’m a firm believer of right over wrong.
Oh regret missing the Stevie late-night party! But I can still enjoy these beautiful songs :) Happy Belated Birthday Mr. Stevie Wonder!
April is a lawyer who knows what she’s talking about, so her tweets in regards to this latest series of MSM-manufactured scandals should be taken seriously, because they are the TRUTH:
Everything is going to be fine. Trust in the intelligence of our POTUS & AG, the smartest men in the room. :-) @niceprogressive— April (@ReignOfApril) May 14, 2013
As I said above……We are in good hands.
The dark side is trying any and everything. They are going to eat themselves alive. They are exploding right before our own eyes. All of their money, and distorted lies are amounting to nothing. Be still…..watch and pray.
President Obama and AG Holder will make their enemies their footstools.
“the smartest men in the room.”
More to the DOJ story. You just don’t tell AP we are investigating you unless some arrests are forthcoming
one cannot stop keeping a watchful eye on the media echo chamber
Here is a story that makes me furious—-cruel and inhumane treatment of horses and colts—–rounding them up, kept in crowded holding areas, 1700 missing as they were sold to a Co. rancher who likely sold them to slaughterhouses in Mexico. Bureau of Land Mgmt is charged with protecting our wild horses—-under Dept. of Interior—–but appears to be under the influence of powerful ranching lobby. It’s disgusting—-why can’t the horses run free, enjoy their lives with their families? There’s plenty of grazing land for all. Humans are the worst of the animal species.
Moooooorning everyone, R&S is 64.21% done – see ya in a bit.
Morning!! I missed Stevie Wonder?????????????????????? THE most incredible artist EVER??? Happy Belated Birthday to him:)
Another find this morning….http://maddowblog.msnbc.com/_news/2013/05/14/18248320-justice-department-targets-ap-phone-logs
The details of the story are still coming together, but based on preliminary accounts, the Justice Department didn’t eavesdrop on journalists’ phone calls, but rather, obtained logs showing incoming and outgoing calls, as well as the duration of those phone calls.
And why was the Justice Department doing this? In part because congressional Republicans demanded a full-scale leak investigation and DOJ officials took the request very seriously.
A year ago last week, the AP reported on a foiled terrorist plot that the Obama administration had successfully prevented. White House critics were outraged, accusing the administration of boasting about its counter-terrorism victory for campaign purposes, including leaking classified information.
Republicans accused the administration of deliberately leaking classified information, jeopardizing national security in an effort to make Mr. Obama look tough in an election year — a charge the White House rejected. But some Democrats, too, said the leaking of sensitive information had gotten out of control.
Mr. Holder’s move at the time was sharply criticized by Republicans as not going far enough. They wanted him to appoint an outside special counsel, and a Senate resolution calling for a special counsel was co-sponsored by 29 Republican senators.
On Monday, however, after The A.P. disclosed the seizure of the records, some Republican leaders criticized the administration as going too far.
Right. As of last night, as the story drew serious questions from the left and right, the GOP was left in the awkward position of arguing that it wanted the Justice Department to do everything possible to root out national security leaks, except what the Justice Department ended up doing to root out national security leaks.
REPUBLICANS ASKED FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As usual, they want to have things BOTH WAYS! They are so fucked up….so fucked up.
Agree with everything you said….
Good morning DF,
So how fucked up are the republicans?
Sorry, cannot give them them them respect of a Caital “R” these days because they are so fucked up.
“Give them the respect of a Capital “R”
Time for my green tea…..got up too early.
Morning, LDS:) This “scandal” is not what it appears to be. I hope that this bites the Republicans in the ass so hard their dogs scream for help!
Morning all. This might just be true:
The AP "scandal" is an attempt to cover up for some GOP Congressman violating secrecy laws and putting US spies in danger.— rootless (@root_e) May 14, 2013
Now add THIS to the mix!
DF, thanks for the link. The “r’s” always go too far and end up with egg on their faces and the opposite of what they’re trying to do. I’m seeing a lot of pushback on twitter. There’s just been too much piling on by republicans drunk on their own hatred and the media and it’s starting to boomerang. By the way, the poll showing that some “r’s” thought Benghazi was bigger than Teapot Dome is the biggest piece of BS imaginable. I defy any average Republican voter to describe Teapot Dome and say what president was involved. I’d especially like to hear from those who don’t know what Benghazi is.
Hey, jackie:) Yes, they doth protest too much! It will all come back in the end to bite them….it would be so fitting that this be the nail in their coffins. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving group.
Good morning, TODville!! I think we need to put on some waders for today’s mess from the MSM. They are wallowing in their victimization and POTUS is not playing!!
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO look at this!! Times they are achangin’ :)
I KNOW! :) Made my heart happy this morning….
AZ must be more progressive than NH by now!
The Wall Street Journal revealed this week a little-known watchdog group was responsible for getting the IRS to audit the environmental organization Greenpeace. Two years ago, Public Interest Watch challenged Greenpeace’s tax-exempt status and accused the group of money laundering and other crimes. According to the Journal, tax records show more than 95 percent of the funding of Public Interest Watch was provided by the oil giant ExxonMobil.
On its website, Public Interest Watch says it was founded “in response to the growing misuse of charitable funds by nonprofit organizations and the lack of effort by government agencies to deal with the problem.” The group describes its mission as: “Keeping an Eye on the Self-Appointed Guardians of the Public Interest.”
Rise and Shiiiiiiine!
What a wonderful way to start the day with pics of Stevie Wonder over the years. Great treat! Happy birthday! You have been a part of my life since you first appeared as a child so many years ago. We will never tire of your music.
