"You Are the Sunshine of My Life" is a 1973 pop single released by Stevie Wonder. The first two lines of the song are sung, not by Wonder, but by James Gilstrap and Lani Groves. The single version of the song differed from the album version, adding horns to the mix. The song became Wonder's third number-one pop single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and his first number-one on the adult contemporary chart. It also won Wonder a Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. This song was the second single released from the album Talking Book. The song opened 194 Radio City on 21 October 1974. Rolling Stone ranked the song #281 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In 1982, the song was featured in an episode of the American television series Taxi titled "Jim's Inheritance." In the 2005 war drama, Jarhead, actor Jamie Foxx forced actor Jake Gyllenhaal to play "You Are the Sunshine of My Life", but because Gyllenhaal did not have a bugle, Foxx made him play it by buzzing his lips.
