Happy Birthday - Stevie Wonder

July 2007 Edition - Track 21
Album: Hotter Than July (Sample/Purchase)
Label: UMG Recordings
Release Date: 9/29/80
Referral: Amoeba music store

As much as I'd like to think Stevie was writing this song in anticipation of my entry into the world 1 year later, it actually served as part of a much more important and real cause. As a single off his first platinum album "Hotter than July", the track was used as a vehicle for Wonder's campaign to make Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday a national holiday. Luckily, it looks like it worked out quite well.

Here is a little montage complete with Spanish subtitles:
