40 years ago, stevie wonder released his best and most creative album, featuring melodic classics, funky grooves, and jazz-rock fusion virtuosity. then there was boz scaggs, david bowie, heart, war....

toddalso in 1976, todd rundgren released the song that he should be most famous for ("love of the common man"). it's an inspiration, declaration, and fascinating song, musically, lyrically, and cosmically:

"i've been burned in my prime;
the simple things in life seem so hard to learn sometimes.
and it takes so long.
catch it while you can
too late tomorrow
and everyone....

we all know what comes of that:
living in your pockets and talking through your hat
but it won't take long to turn your head around
too late tomorrow,
'cause everyone needs the love of the common man
to turn the world around
too late tomorrow...

'cause everyone...

everyone is waiting, just anticipating on you.
won't you make a showing everybody knows what to do.
take a dive from your ivory tower,
and fall on...

everyone will catch you, everyone..."
