“Overjoyed” is a 1985 hit single released by American and Motown music legend Stevie Wonder on the Tamla (Motown) label. The single peaked at No. 24 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1986, remaining in the Top 40 for six weeks. In addition, “Overjoyed” was a No. 1 hit on the adult contemporary chart, the eighth (and, to date, last) of his career. The song was written first for the 1979 album Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants, but was left off the album, and re-recorded for the album In Square Circle. In the liner notes for the song, “crickets, nightingale & additional bird sounds, ocean, pebbles in pond, stone dropped, crushing leaves” are listed under “environmental percussion”. Read on...
