Like the Beatles'The Beatles 1, this rundown of Stevie Wonder chestnuts is merciless in cutting a huge list of classic tracks down to a single disc's worth of the most recognizable. Anyone who's treasured even one or two of these songs and … see full wiki
Coveting Stevie Wonder's 'Musiquarium' all these years, I now justly feel guilty for getting this fabulous collection at such a cheap price.
Nevertheless, a collection without Stevie is one bereft, so I am happy to have his greatest hits to play in my car and in my MP3 player.
The essential of essentials: For upbeat soul songs, no one can beat his list: "Uptight," "I Was Made to Love Her," and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours". Each is a splendid, toe-tappin' soul delight. Gems such as "Sir Duke" (a tribute to Duke Ellington) and "Master Blaster (Jammin')" (a tribute to Bob Marley) are tokens from his masterpieces 'Song in the Key of Life,' and 'Hotter Than July'. On the softer side, he excels just as well on "My Cherie Amour" "You Are the Sunshine of My Life," and "I Just Called to Say I Love You" (Just listen to the way he incorporates the seasons and Zodiac in this deceptively simple tune.)
All the rest come from classic albums, including 'Talking Book,' and 'Innervisions,' so you know this terrific set of twenty-one songs is only a sampler. I saw Stevie Wonder in the Summer of 1988 and took in one of the greatest concerts in my life. Enjoy! :>)
