Never Dreamed, my God the vocals touched, Too High, the intro 2 Don't You Worry 🤣

I also like the Michael McDonald version of Too High and the Jose Feliciano version of Golden Lady. I have this Motown compilation of various artists doing their songs in other languages. Stevie has several on it and one is a song in Italian that is not a translation of another song called Se Tu Regazza Mia. That's one of my favorites too. There's a video on Youtube of Stevie performing it on a TV show in Italy. That's not the studio version though.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I think it’s a classic with a catchy melody, and easy to play on the piano

Ordinary Pain is wonderful with his 2 part song, one being a ballad of the male side of the story and the second funky part being the female's side of the story.

fun fact: Stevie wanted Chaka Khan to sing the female vocal in the 2nd half of the song,but she had scheduling conflicts.

On the Motown album I mentioned above, there's an Italian and a Spanish version of this track. Stevie was on SOUL! (Ellis Haizlip's PBS show) and performed a bilingual version.

slyjackson -- I'd suggest you stream or buy Rufus' 1977 classic, Ask Rufus, which is a great intro to her.

All great choices from an all-time great artist!! It always gets me thinking, like what happened, Stevie?? Why so good in the 70s, then a definite creative decline post Hotter Than July and here are, 15 years since his last album!! 😮

Like, what happened, Stevie?? eek neutral

Thanks, I will. Will we ever see another Stevie Wonder album released? or his 2005's album was the very last?

I wish he would put out his unreleased material; rumor has it he wants it all destroyed after he passes... sad

Another wierd thing there. He apparently has all this great unreleased material doing nothing. Why not re-record/ remix it with modern Stevie vocals and bang a brand new album!! A great idea, especially if he is creatively dry, as I guess he is cool wink.

No, I hope that doesn't happen, better leave that music alone as it is.

That’s awful, especially if it sounds anything like his 70s input. Maybe he should leave the songs as they are and release them

Some of the songs from his later albums are like that already. Such as Cryin' Through The Night on Characters. There's an unreleased version of that recorded in the early 1970s. All I Do from 1980 was originally recorded by Tammi Terrell in the 1960s. Lighting Up The Candles from Jungle Fever is originally from around 1984.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Well he's not that old, and sure wasn't back in 2005 when he released his last album, he was only 55.
