Stevie Wonder is bloody Brilliant! Yeah really!!
Hello fickle friends and netizens...
I recently watched an episode of Jonathan Ross' chat show (it's a UK thing so if you don't know what I am talking about, don't worry it's a late night chat show that's all..pretty funny too with music and the usual shit that these kind of shows have), and one of the guests was Stevie Wonder.
That is the actual show with him on it.
Now. I must confess to something here. I really do not know the general pubic attitude towards Stevie but as far as I go, I have always had a real dislike for the guy and his music. Yes I said the guy and his music not just his music.
I'm not totally sure! (What kind of a moron am I you are now thinking right..hehe)
I think it stems from when I was a kid and it was due to the fact that my mother always seemed to be playing records of his!!!
You know how your parents' music can traumatise you as a kid sometimes?
Well I reckon that is what happened.
So as I grew up I really couldn't stand the guy. I only had to hear the opening of 'Ebony and Ivory' or even see his face on the TV screen and I'd be jumping up to switch channels!!
So I saw him on this show the other night and he was interviewed first of all.
I thought..hmm he's actually quite a cool guy. Relaxed chap, very genuine and also I don't think I have ever seen someone so outwardly HAPPY!
Then he sang some of his well known songs..tracks that I remembered from the olden days (!) but they sounded a bit different this time around.
I was just blew away by that I have to admit.
I mean, this guy can friggin sing right?!
Not just sing, he feels the music.
I have always appreciated live music. Something about seeing a performance live just makes it special anyway. It transcends the genre or style, I can be impressed or get into the feel of most genres or kinds of music if I am fortunate enough to see the live performance. Of course it's better when you really are there in person but seeing Stevie Wonder live on TV was pretty friggin' special.
The result of all this is that I immediately went online to find me a nice Wonder album.
I just wanted a good one, the well known hits and none of the tracks that (I learned from reading reviews and info on him) were panned as he went through some rather 'dodgy' stages in the 80's-90's period.
This, my friends, is the collection of tracks I have been listening to a LOT in the past few days and the one I want you to listen to.
If you are like I was and can't stand him then I URGE you to take this opportunity to change all that cos' if you really do imagine yourself a muso or a music aficionado, which is why you are visiting mp3 blogs right>? then you cannot seriously call yourself that if you don't learn to appreciate such a massively talented guy.
I might be turning into my mother of course.
