40 Year Itch: You Are the Sunshine of My Life Hits #1

Four months after topping the charts with "Superstition" , Stevie Wonder returned to the Number 1 spot with "You Are the Sunshine of My Life", a song he wrote for his first wife Syreeta Wright, a Motown secretary who taught transcendental meditation and brought Stevie some centeredness to his life..if not sunshine. Future #1s "Frankenstein" and "My Love" were also in the Top 10 and another, George Harrison's "Give Me Love", entered the chart at #59. Sweet's "Little Willy" peaked at #3.
