Why was 'Natural Wonder video only released in Japan?

CubeNov 29, 2002 (21h09)
Does anyone know why the video of 'Natural Wonder' was never released
worldwide seems only in Japan ,I wonder why also the 'Song Review ' CD in
London England it was sold as a single CD and in the States it was a
double album. I wonder why?

DANNov 29, 2002 (10h29)
The Target commercial features "The Christmas Song" ("Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire...") , and it's a duet with India.Arie.
It can be purchased at Target on a special holiday CD.

Steveland MorrisNov 28, 2002 (03h09)

I have a question?Nov 28, 2002 (01h53)
HAS ANYONE SEEN THE TARGET COMMERCIAL??? WHATS THE NAME OF THAT SONG AND WHO IS HE SINGING IT WITH? PLEASE I NEED TO KNOW. E-MAIL ME AT thescreename@yahoo.com

Regina HopkinsNov 27, 2002 (04h08)
Stevie Wonder of the World you are such an inspiration to us all. Words are not enough to describe the glow you put in my soul with just the mention of your name. I have shared your love, pain, joy and sorrow through your song. You will forever be a part of making me who was, am and will be. When I find my place in the sun you will shine with me until the end of time.
I love who you are and all that you stand for. I have to thank you for your many inspirations. God bless and keep you always--Your eternal sister Regina

GenevieveNov 27, 2002 (00h16)
hi stevie, I haave only hard a some of your songs and they'er the best! When I first heard of you was when I was reading a paper to practis reading and I heard you were blind and you first started with a hurmanica that your friend gave you. I think you are the best singer and my mom has a billon of you records.

MacNov 26, 2002 (16h28)
I thank God for allowing the world to share in the joy of music, song, and inspiration from you. There is none like you.

Eric BNov 26, 2002 (02h01)
If you all like the covers to Innervisions and Fulfillingness, then the missing third of this trio is Willie Hutch's "Mark of the Beast" (1974). Think of a deep pink "Fulfillingness" cover. It has the heads of the Beast, plus Hutch's head, IIRC. Obviously the same artist.

"Something to Say" was obviously the closing statement of "Signed Sealed Delivered" and his first contract altogether. You must hae known a big change was coming after that.

Marcellus RobertsNov 25, 2002 (20h24)
I really hope you get a chance to atleast hear my name. my name is Marcellus Roberts. I want you to remember me writing you in this forum when I come to ask to cover one of your songs on my album. I am a 20 yr old soul singer from Midland, Texas. I currently atten South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. i am studying commercial music. Which is a real blessing considering this is the one of the only colleges in the world that offers a program like this. I've always had people tell me that I am going to be famous and I am a good perfprmer. But I know that I am missing something. i haven't quite figured out what it is yet. I was so moved by India Arie
s song that she wrote for you. All of the same thoughts were running through my head. i doubt that I could have said it as beautifully as she did. I know you are really busy, and I'm not even sure that you will ever read this posting, but my e-mail address is attached, and it would mean everything in the world to me to get a response back from you. Even if it is an automated one. it would really lift a burden from my shoulders to know that I have the smallest connection to someone I admire so much. Oh i really like the song you did with Boys II Men on their latest album. Hopefully you will respect me as an artist enough to work with me one day. It would definately be the pinnacle of my career. Thanks for your time Stevie Wonder.

DezNov 25, 2002 (15h57)
AnotherMusician,

I too like the "Hotter than July" cover. I was around 4 when this album was released. Even then I was a fan.
I use to ask "Why is Stevie crying".....lol. That was before common sense kicked in of course. If you were fortunate
enough in 1971 you could get the "Where I'm coming from" mobile from the puch out letters in the album. My cover
doesn't have that but I've seen the original cover. I dug the "Innervisions" cover because it gave Stevie a comic book
kind of look. I wonder what those characters in the inside gate represent.


Peace
Dez

AnotherMusicianNov 25, 2002 (14h55)
"What we're making is history,
fooling impossibility,
making love, not a fantasy....love is true, love is you" from "Perfect Angel". Classic Stevie lyrics.

On another note...how hard is it to listen to "Smile Please" and not singalong with it? Real hard, at least
for me. It's got that what I call "fingasnapability" to it. Especially when he "imitates" a horn section with
live voices. He does the same thing in "With Each Beat Of My Heart"....another example of Stevie's mastery
at writing lyrics.
Dez, as far as album covers go....I'd have to agree with TALKING BOOK. Probably because it's a rare photo of
him minus the glasses. Also the daishiki and cornrows reflect the mood and pride of the "community" at that time.
The HOTTER THAN JULY album cover would probably rank #2 with me, only because it was the first album by any
artist that I ever bought. As a matter of fact, I use the painting of the flaming piano from that album as my
screensaver.


DezNov 25, 2002 (13h01)
I know this may seem strage but I'm going to ask anyway. I know we've asked for your favorite Stevie album, but , what is you favorite album cover? I like the album covers that have real photos like "Talking Book" and "Music of My Mind". "Innervisions" was great too. I think I would have to go for "Talking Book" followed by "Innervisions" or "Fulfillingness First Finale"

Peace
Dez



DezNov 25, 2002 (12h59)
BK,
I agree 100%. "Where I'm coming from" was very monumental. The album was basically saying that he wasn't going to let Motown
tell him what to do anymore. He had a vision that he had to make reality. This may really wasn't pushed by Motown and wasn't
a commercial sucess, however, we now saw a Stevie who wanted freedom to express his views to the fullest. "Do yourself
a favor" is one of his earliest funk masterpieces. The clavinet is electrifying.

I also love "Take up a course in happiness" I the guitar draft on that track is great. One of my favorite love songs is "Something out of the blue". It kind of has a Burt Bacharach sound to it. Sadly this is the only harmonica we get on this album. Of course we all love the hits "If you really love me" and "I never dreamed..." This was our first taste of the Stevie that would dive head first into varying musical styles. Going back to "Signed Sealed Delivered", I also liked "Anything you want me to do". His natural voice was incredible but, he also had a great falsetto. It really shines in this song as well as "We can work it out"

Peace
Dez


Chris FrazierNov 25, 2002 (06h41)
Hey Stevie My name is Chris I am very good vocalist from Buffalo and i need the intro duction to the music world because I have the enfluence that I have from way back from Stevie that say's to me. from one of your songs how does it go. and I use to sing this all the time to my mother and we would laugh all noght long. it goes My baby loved me my mama boo a hood did and I went flying through the air. would you elab rate on these lyrics so that I could tell my mother that you didn't mean she farted. I was young then and didn't know any better about your lyrics. and I thought you said my mother farted. and we went flying through the air. Please clearfy that lyric. for. Cfrazier of Buffalo NY. Frazi77@aol.com

carltonNov 25, 2002 (06h19)
Hey stevie,with out trying to kiss your ass....i have to say that you have been a big influence in my life.And not just musicially but spiritually also.I am another mucisian that has been captivated by your geniusness!....anyway...enough kissing!
I am in a band called BONIC and we have just release our debut album with Garry Beers(inxs).
And i am looking forward to coming to the States in the next year or so and even possably meeting the 8th Wonder of this world!....ha ha i snuck another one in again did'nt i? Cheers mate, Carlton.

bkNov 24, 2002 (02h54)
Yeah i agree folks an in depth authorised biography of Stevie is required.Svennsons book from several years back was pretty good
However an up to date biography would help.A DVD OF HIS BEST videos wouls be great.
Indeed a decent biography is still not on this site(Wherever lad is "Faut-le-faire!!)
As for the Start of the 70's ,yes i was gonna include that great album as a sixties era album
"Heaven help us all",the electric "We can work it out"cover version(brilliant),in fact why does not Stevie do an album of cover songs?
He did Ray Charles !
Back to Signed Sealed Delivered......There is the epic"Don't wonder why",it makes me cry often ,the glorious and sublime "I Gotta have a song"(Stevies own take on his need to sing/compose etc.)
The "Where i'm coming from" album announces the changes.Apart from bits of "If you really love me"
this is not a commercial hit fodder piece of work.The cover is right on different!The songs,well you can hear the changes a coming!
"Do yourself a favor",the brilliant "I never dreamed you'd leave in Summer",and of course the epic two parter--"Sunshine in their eyes"
Stevie knew where he was coming from and where he was going.What future directin might he take,or will he stick to formula...
comments please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SoCal SnapperNov 23, 2002 (03h46)
So good to see so much Stevie love here! GREAT!!
Waiting anxiously for the House Of Toys benefit. Anyone know who else is on the bill?
I saw the show in 2000 and Stevie only did like 5 songs ... anyone know how it went down last year?
Anyone know when Stevie will grace the West coast with a full blown Stevie Wonder Show!!??!!
Please email me if you have any info!

STEVIE!

DezNov 22, 2002 (15h26)
Eric B,
Wow! Is it really true that Stevie didn't apporve of the book? All the other sites I've been on and the book itself
claim that both Stevie and his mom cooperated in giving information for the book.

Listening to
"Maybe your Baby"

Peace
Dez

woodyNov 22, 2002 (14h37)
Thanks for everything! Please play the uk soon. how about Glastonbury 2003?

DezNov 22, 2002 (12h51)
(Continued)
I meant to say "Wondering" from "I was made to love her" in 1967

This album is not a 60's era album per se but, it closes that era actually." Signed Sealed Delivered" is a classic through and through! Man its awful good.
His version of "We can work it out" is dynamite! The instrumental track alone was a rocker. "Joy takes over me" is a funk masterpiece. Plus
"You can't judge a book by its cover" is so funky! He even uses the bass riff to go into his drum solo on both his 'live' albums that year. The piano
and drums on "Sugar" are so crisp that you can't help but dance. Don't forget the title track. His drumming on this album was more upfront
than the previous ones it seems. You can hear that same drumming on "Its a shame", a song he wrote for the Spinners that same year.

Peace
Dez

DezNov 22, 2002 (12h47)
AnotherMusician,
I read the book and it basically tells the story of a woman who pretty much had a rough life, traveled from home to home, forced into
prostitution and by the way happened to be Stevie Wonder's mother. Its not really about Stevie but it tells the story of how he and
his career came to be. I liked the book myself. Its defintely a story of triumph. Plus there are good pieces of info on Stevie and his
musical origin.........Our first introduction to Stevie was the 60's!!!! I agree with all the comments on the 60 stuff. Eric B, "Ain't no lovin'"
is a definite gem. I love the vamp. I would go out on a limb to say that this is his first adult album. I even love his version of "God bless
the child". It seens that when he sings a cover, he makes it his own especially on "Sunny". We can't forget Little Stevie and his albums,
If you're a die hard Stevi fan which I'm sure all of us are, you'll find some pleasure in "The jazz soul of Little Stevie". "Some other time" and
"Session 112" are pretty good. You can almost hear Stevie and his producers trying to find Stevie winning formula that would soon begin emerging
with the start of "Fingertips pt. 2". Oh yeah don't be confused, there is a song on the "Jazz Soul of..." album called "Wondering". However its not
the "Wondering that would appear 4 years later on &quo

AnotherMusicianNov 22, 2002 (03h57)
Eric B.
Thanks for the info on the book. As for the contents of the book regarding the relationship between
Stevie and his mother, nothing written will will damage my respect for the man nor his music. It's no
secret that he's had a rough life. I mean all the passion, pleasure, joy, pain and heartbreak that he
expresses in his music isn't something manufactured in the studio or conjured up with the stroke of is pen.
It comes from his heart and from personal experiences. Although I'm sure he'll readily admit he's never been
to "Saturn". But he has been to Saginaw, Michigan...thank you Michael Sembello. Okay, I'm getting off track here.
I don't know. Part of me wants to buy the book to get a deeper insight into the man. And that's all he is, is a man.
I admire him greatly, obviously I respect his work. And he'd be the first one to tell you that without his relationship
to God, he wouldn't be where he is today. WE ALL HAVE GIFTS, it's up to us to find them and use them. But back to
the book, another part of me is reminding me that although everything she says may be true, she's not exactly doing
this for free. And she knows that no one is going to want to read a book sugarcoating everything and making her son
out to be a knight in shining armor. By the way, to anybody's knowledge has Stevie ever written an autobiography?
I've checked various bookstores and catalogs over the years and found nothing.

Eric BNov 22, 2002 (02h17)
Aint No Lovin' was really good. That along with Do I Love Her were as good as the 70's stuff. Plus all the clavinet songs that introduced the instrument on that album.
Did anyone read the Daily News Article I linked to about him opposing his mother's book? I thought that would be of interest.

bk in the ukNov 22, 2002 (01h53)
Great......to hear all the talk about Stevie in the 60,s!!!!!!!
theres a wealth of classic stuff hidden away on several albums.
The moody "Sad boy",the hip"Contract on love"which was of course classic Holland Dozier Holland.
The drifting "Hey love"."Thank you love ",which of course re-evolved into "Ordinary Pain"off S.I.T.K.O.L
We cannot forget the sensational "Uptight" and "I was made to love her".(Hendrix and The Beach Boys")covered the latter
For many the"For once in my life"album has the best mix,plus some real gems.
"I'd be a fool right now".....just an awesome track.The classic "I do't know why i love her"
with its brilliant vocals and great keyboards.The "Cherie Amour" album has some gems too(US 69 release).
The poignant "Angie Girl"The manic harp playing on "Pearl".Stevies fine rendition of The Doors
song "Light my fire".Least of all do not forget "Yester-me yester-you-yesterday"
There is no doubt that Stevie put out some fantastic stuff,not least by having a live number 1
with "Fingertips".
The "Looking back" anthology(1977 release) is a fine collection of work of this era's work
Ironically it was going to be an antholgy in 1974,but got held back for three years as Stevie wanted to promote the then new sound

AnotherMusicianNov 21, 2002 (19h34)
Dez,
Good lookin' out again on that info. That's what I wanted to see as well...I wasn't sure which song
he had officially released as singles..i.e. "keep on running" "world outside my window". And yes, to appreciate
the Stevie of the 70's, you have to go back and simply admire what he did in the 60's. A favorite? That's kind
of hard..but at the risk of sounding like someone who doesn't have a vast history of his 60's music (and I really don't)
I'd have to say "my cheri amour" and "I was made to love her" are tops. I am fond of "purple raindrops" and of course
"for once in my life". I do like his vocal delivery on his rendition of the Beetle's "we can work it out" also. I can imagine
"don't you worry 'bout a thing" being written in that era as well minus the Latin flavor and more of a Motown backbeat to it.
Special shot out to *sweetdrkone*.

luisNov 21, 2002 (17h41)
hello stevie, what else can i say except that you are one funky soulful brother, i love your bass playing and keyboard bass notes, i'm also a bass player and have always been inspired by the magic and rythmn in your songs, take care of yourself and hello everyone from japan and new york............ and the rest of the world peace and love

DezNov 21, 2002 (13h26)
(Continued)

As far as classic Stevie 60's album are concerned "For once in my Life" and
"My Cherie Amour" show Stevie's music growing into sophisticated peices of soul/funk/jazz as well as other musical styles. I almost forgot
to mention my fav song from "For once in my life", "Do I love Her". I'm suprised that song wasn't a bigger hit. This is where I belive
Stevie really started to blossom as a musician. The electric piano is dynamic and as usual Stevie vocals drive the song home.

Peace
Dez

DezNov 21, 2002 (13h24)
AnotherMusician,

Here's another site that you'd probabaly dig.
http://members.tripod.com/SoulfulKindaMusic/swonder.htm

We've talked a lot about the 70s Stevie Wonder, but what about the 60's? I know that this era doesn't have the synth wizard
at his best but, you have to agree that even some of his 60's songs are still relevant and sound just as good now as back then.
Most of Motown's (or anyone elses for that matter) 60's singles lasted for only 2- 3 minutes. I guess Stevie figured early that he
had to captivate his audience before the song was over. I love some of the lesser known singles like "I'd Cry" from "I was
made to love her" in 1967. I always ask my self "is that Stevie playing the piano on this one 'cause it rocks"! In this song though the
standout instrument is his voice. At 17 Stevie's voice, already carried a very authentic sound. I also love "Thank You Love" from
"Down to Earth" in 1966. In this song I love the chords and strings. On this album Stevie did lots of cover songs, but I know he had
a hand in writing "Thank You Love". I really love how he performed this song live on his 1970's 'Live' album where he did switched back and
fourth between this song and "For once in my life". As far as classic Stevie 60's album are concerned "For once in my Life" and
"My Cherie Amour" show Stevie's

DanielleNov 20, 2002 (17h31)
Hi Stevie my name is Danielle Costello I'm a 19 yrs. old college student. In my Composition we were told to write about any person or event in the 60's, 70's and 80's. I chose to write about you because, you inspire so many people. But, I'm finding it so hard to find some up-to-date facts about you; could you help me.

AnotherMusicianNov 20, 2002 (02h02)
Dez,
Thanks for the info on the chart positionings on Stevie's albums. And by the way, I agree
with you. Marvin's "Just To Keep You Satisfied" is hot. I've heard about that "battle" between
Marvin and Stevie on stage back in the day as well. It's just hard to compare the two. They both
did their thing. Marvin more or less was all about finding a sound that suited him and sticking with it.
That's why his albums have that continuity to it. Stevie was by far more creative or should I say he
expressed his creativity more. Always pushing the envelope, Stevie just used his natural talent and his
attention to detail to help manifest whatever musical, Spiritual, or socialogical "innervision" he had sketched
in his mind until it reached it's "higher ground". Please pardon that long-winded sentence...lol.

DezNov 19, 2002 (17h11)
AnotherMusician,

I think this site has the info you're looking for.

http://www.ritchie-hardin.com/soul/swlps.html

I too dig Marvin Gaye. I think one of my favs by him is a slow cut called "Just to keep you satisfied". Very moving.
I really wonder about Stevie's relationship with Motown now. I know Stevie has alot of pull since he's been with the
company almost since its birth in the early 60's.

I remember reading that Berry Gordy use to have the battle of the stars in which he would make his artists square off
against each other on stage. One in particular was Marvin Gaye vs. Little Stevie Wonder. Stevie was always a dynamc live performer.
To make a long story short, Stevie effortlessly won the crowd over while Marvin recieved boos as he had performed a song on
a harmonica-like instrument clearly trying to out do his opponent. That was the last battle of the stars at the Greystone.


Peace
Dez

AnotherMusicianNov 19, 2002 (16h35)
Dez or anybody else. I'm wondering where I could find a history of Stevie's chart rankings
for his singles and albums. I heard that the definitive collection does, but I wasn't really planning
on adding that to my collection since I have plenty of other albums of his with those songs on it.
I'd only buy it because it may look nice in my collection lol. But I would also buy it if it had the rankings.
And it is a fact that Stevie was Motown's biggest revenue gainer during the 70's. I would assume followed
closely by Marvin Gaye. I've mentioned this before but Stevie and Marvin are probably the only 2 people
who quench my musical tastes on a consistent basis. And it's strange because the artistry that exudes from
both of them touch me in the same way, but they're different at the same time. Well, not gonna get started on this
cause I know I'm running out of room. Take care everybody.

DezNov 19, 2002 (12h44)
Bk
I whole heartedly agree. I would of course, buy just about anything Stevie puts out, but I felt that the Definitive collection
is just another greatest his package to hold us over until the release of his next album. Over the years I've heard many unreleased songs
by Stevie. Some of those I can't believe weren't released. It would be a sad sad day if those songs were never released. I would go
as far to say that some unreleased material could rival the stuff that was released.

Like RRob and Bk, I was curious as to why Motown didn't really seem to be involved in the tribute to Stevie a few weeks ago.
Not that I didn't like the show but, there was no Berry Gordy, no Smokey. As we all know Stevie not only made money for Motown
with his music, he wrote for everyone it seems and almost single handedly carried Motown through the 70s.

Listening to "Take up a course in happiness" 1971

Peace
Dez

DanNov 19, 2002 (00h51)
Hi Stevie. I'm from Spain, and I'm mad about your music, it's simply fantastic, wonderful, it really touches my heart. Although I haven't been a fan till not long ago, once I discovered your amaizing music, I am completely hooked, you're simply the best.

caramelfantazyNov 19, 2002 (00h44)
hey i am steveland morris' loyalest fan or at least one of many that is, i just wanted to let everyone know about this great cd currently out because it reminds me a lot of stevie's work and i am sure all his fans could appreciate it. the cd is called 'Red Hot + Riot' and it offers soo many versatile artists on the disk including the legendary Fela Kuti, Macy Gray, Femi Kuti, and many great Afro-beat artists, all the artists have a great sense of what music really is and i am just trying to let everyone know about this coolness, go out and put your ear to tha streets for Red Hot + Riot

bk in the ukNov 18, 2002 (23h36)
Hi playmates..
Yeah RRob is dead right,where the hell were Motown at the B.E.T. show???
That new song is defintely very good.It gives me great hope!Ps i have heard Superstition being played an awful lot of late!!!
How about a Christmas single eh??? Stevie come on boy !sort it out!!!!.
By the way "Stay Gold " is a beautiful song,plus i love the harmonica.
By the way his appearance at the upcoming Toys gig,please get some music for us !!!!
The Definitive collection thats just out has i now realize been released before(Reviewed
in the current edition of Q magazine in the UK)Its not even on the Motown label.Cashing in on Xmas
again with the same old stuff!!!!I am afraid thats how it looks.i am sure if Stevie was on another label
this would not be happening.If he wants to retire,let it be.If he wants all his unreleased stuff in
the vaults destroyed in the case of his death...then God only knows that his fans may well die in sadness.
Stevie just needs to leave clear control so that he is not exploited like perhaps Hendrix,and by releasing sub-standard
product.To know you is to love you Stevie,but we may starve to death without your soul music.

The worlds awaits....how about a surprise and the owner of this site getting Stevie to put up
a real fan message?

AS FOR COVERS: Mary J Blige & George Michael "As"--excellent job. Jodeci- "Lately" good one, Barrio Boyz- "All In Love Is Fair" was a heartfelt one, Intro-Ribbon In The Sky was a respectable one which Stevie approved of. Whitney Houston- "I Was made to Love "him" which was too cool I think, Mr. Lee/R Kelly "Hey Love" was very good, I dont know if "Never Had A Dream Come True" by S CLUB 7 was the Stevie remake--im unclear about that one, Najee-SONGS IN THE KEY OF STEVIE a whole cd giving a jazz tribute to the wonderman was smooth, Norman Brown- "Too High" which Stevie appears is in jazz form also, Luther Vandross- "Creepin" & "Until You come Back To Me (intro) both were romantically beautiful, Donnell Jones- "Knocks Me Off My Feet" BRAVO BRAVO!, Oh I also liked the short tribute BET did for Stevie 2 years ago also. But the one remake that deserved attention was JODY WATLEY "Too Shy Tio Say" WHICH WAS SOOOO BEAUTIFULLY DONE & I KNOW STEVIE HAD TO FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS ONE. Its on her cd "Intimacy" if you can find it which her whole was excellent. DIANA ROSS covered that song also years ago which was done subtle & easy & nice but JODY's was excellent. Stevie is a inspiration to her & it was cool to see her perform with him on the CHARACTERS special.

WHERE WAS MOTOWN at STEVIE'S WALK OF FAME? I didnt realize this til a few days later. No one Motown artist showed up in person or via satellite! What is wrong with this picture??? Was there some kind of meeting MOTOWN had that we didnt hear about? That a shame though after all the years he had with the label & the artists which they all claimed it was like a second family unit. Okay, on a happier note, Im glad to see he finally got a tv special dedicated to him...long time coming & they didnt wait til he passed away to do it. Next subject, I have him on video & this man has a musical legacy. To see him do a live performance of "Fingertips" an adult was amazing! He can still keep the life in the song "As" when he performs it live. Oh, but his live performance of "Keep Love Alive" was the one that stood out. His performace of "We Didnt Know" with Whitney Houston was very nice too. But he aslo has a humorous side too; when he did the camera skit on Saturday NIght Live is one. As for his music videos, the ones that stand out for me is "Go Home", "Ribbon In The Sky", "Overjoyed", & the deep deep "Skeletons". Next subject, the cd collection "CLOSE OF THE CENTURY" was fabulously put together with good information on him & chart status. Hey J, thank you for the video compilations--it was amazing! In closing, it was one thing to see the amazing love for him

chrissyNov 17, 2002 (15h13)
I watched you on the BET Walk of Fame on Tuesday 12,2002. You are great man and God fearing man that's what I like about like yourself when you know it was God that brought to this point in life. I live in Cleveland and I know some of your relatives here (if their your relatives I'm not for sure). One of the points that you made was about the nation consulting with God on the war that they want to have. It really touched me because I thought that to few of us are thinking have they consulted with or will they ever consult with God. I pray they do before it's too late. God Bless You!

"To walk to school, she's got to get up early...her clothes are old, but never are they dirty"!!

Man, that song is so deep, yet so simple. Musically, lyrically and technically. I just love the way the drum work
and the synth work and the vocals all coincide during the fanfare at the end. Quite simply, Stevie manifested
his innervision of that song into the version you hear on the album. Just a brilliant piece of work!!

Hey everyone...! Did anyone hear what Stevie said at the BET special about how one should be
to be called a genious?
I have searched over the internet for an article but I can't seem to find one... well well... if anyone knows,
please don't hesitate to publish it here on this site... Thanks in advance!

TaraNov 11, 2002 (01h40)
Stevie Wonder is definitely a genius and I love him and his music. Whenever I just want to sing around my apartment or I need my spirits lifted, I put on his music and everything is ok. Thank you for all that you have contributed. Many blessings to you!

HannahNov 10, 2002 (16h21)
Oh, and another thing! Every Stevie-fan HAVE TO litsen to India Arie's (spelling?) tribute song in her last CD. It's the last song. Think it's called "Mr wonderful" or something like that. Just a little tip...

HannahNov 10, 2002 (16h13)
Hi everybody. Did anyone see when Stevie recived the Poolar music award 1999? That evning Stevie preformed in Stockholm with Toots Thilemans. Together they played Blusette, like jamin' in front of the swedish king live in TV. As I sat home watching, I almost cried! That was so very very wonderful and great!!! "Poor little sad little blue blusette". Mmmm. Luv U Stevie!

Irene JalentiNov 9, 2002 (14h49)
Dear Stevie,
I don't know if you'll read one day my message...I just can hope.
I'm 22 years old, and I really love you! I love your music, youe voice, your way to play harmonic...I love what you say in your songs!
I dream to meet you sometimes...but I know it'll be hard to do...I just can still dream and hope...
Sometimes when I feel I won't meet you I really feel cry...I feel a really deep sadness inside myself...
I'm a singer...here in Italy it's hard for Italian do something like your music and become someone....but I'm feelin' good just singin' your songs in a pub and seein' people dance or sing with me.
I thank you, I really thank you for your music...for yourself!
Your music always helps me...in my hard moments I listen to your songs and I'm feelin' better...I don't know if you could understand what you really have done with music...it's not simple "music"...it's something incredible!
Please...reply to me...don't leave dreamin' for all my life to know you...without a hope!
You're the best!!!!
Lots of love!
Take care,
Irene

JennieNov 8, 2002 (23h51)
Hi Stevie Wonder. I am 15 years old and from England. You are my biggest inspiration in the world of music! I play tenor sax and listen to a wide range of music from jazz and funk to rock. You are my favourite musician of alllllll time and I just wanted to tell you how much I admired your love of music. When I see you perform, or even listen to other peoples music like alicia keys at an awards ceremony that I watched on TV, I see you move to the music, feel it and I know that you have a passion for music that noone on earth could describe. I hope you always continue to make music, because wherever I am and however I feel, your music will always light up my day.

RyanNov 8, 2002 (06h58)
Whats up Stevie?
I never thought Id ever get a chance to communicate with you.I just learned how to run a computer and I had to see if you had a web site I guess you do.Well I'm 28 and when I was
8 I sang the first song ever in my life.Guess what?It was one of your songs LATELY. LATELY inspired me more than you ever can believe.I think the talent that I have being a singer is alot because of you.I still get chills when I hear you,well I bet everyone tells you that.Just want to say thanks for being so real and making such powerful songs.P.S.can you email me concert info?I have to see you in concert at least once in my life.

Jen JenNov 8, 2002 (06h55)
Hey Stevie!! I don't even know where 2 begin. Even though I am only 22yrs, I have been your biggest fan since I was a baby. My dad would play it in my room when I was a baby to "sing" me to sleep. Now, I STILL play your music. I have every single "Stevie" album. Every one! Most older people get surprised when they hear me singing one of your songs. One lady was surprised when she heard me singing Bird of Beauty. She was almost mad that I knew songs from "HER" era. Anyway, Stevie, your music can leave somebody speechless. When I watched your tribute on BET, I still felt like that still wasn't enough to show how much you and your music are appreciated. You have influenced so many artists throughout the years, it's rediculous. You have no idea how happy I am that you are putting out another album because I really cannot wait to buy it. Well, Stevie, I don't know what else to say but I love you, and I thank you for your years and years of great music. In the words of Elton John from your tribute on BET, "Steve-vell!" I love you Stevie!!

blue.notesNov 8, 2002 (01h22)
Dear Stevie,
Do you remember "A Soulful Celebration"? I am writing you on behalf of a Munich Choir (situated in Southern Germany). We are rehearsing Part I of George Frideric Handel's Messiah. I was deeply inspired by the really brilliant songs, from "Comfort Ye My People", to "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth" and of course, the "Hallelujah Chorus" and all the other tunes. Now my question is: is there any possibility of getting hold of the original arrangements (there is no songbook available on amazon.com - apparently there used to be an edition of the Hallelujah Chorus but according to my knowledge that was about it)? Can you help us find someone of the 1992 team who would let 80 amateurs (non-profit) sing some of the songs - of course we'd pay for the arrangements!
Thank you very much for taking the time for us - and please, do not stop singing!!
Regards from Munich,
Heike "Blue Notes"

I can't wait!
He did one of his new songs "I can't imagine life without you"

Wow!

deeswiftNov 7, 2002 (02h40)
I need to know when Steve`s new LP is out!! I can`t find any info about it except that it
should have been released long ago. HEEEELP!! It`s driving me insane.


TamaraNov 7, 2002 (02h26)
AnotherMusician,
Just wanted to say thank you for the info about the song entitled "Used to Be".

LaBarronNov 6, 2002 (07h17)
Hello Stevie and All the Stevie fans. I have a request for information. On one collectors album that I purchased a number of years ago, I bought a 3 album (LP - lets you know my age, huh?) that had a song entitled..."If I Ruled The World". I have look for any other album, perferably cd, that contains this awesome song. Can you help. I can't even find the reproduction of the album collection but I do remember that it was a tv order. By the way, saw you at the National Baptist Convention in Kansas City, Kansas, singing the religious song "I won't complain" which included the harmonica solo.... it was tight. Consider doing a religious album with that particular song. I would love to have it.

What's going on STEVIE fans all over the map. It's always good to see
that there are other die-hard STEVIE WONDER fans aside from myself. I thought
I was the only one.

STEVIE'S music is very uplifting, and helps me in my creative process
when i am creating works of art.

To all STEVIE WONDER fans on this site... stay up.

Glad to see, as well, that i am not the only one who anticipates
this soon to be released album...anybody know when this album is
scheduled to be released?????????

Hey everybody!!!!

I finally got the good news that the "House of Toys" benefit that Stevie Wonder does every year for the last seven years is finally here. It's going to be at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, Ca. on Dec. 21, 2002 and it starts at 7:30 pm. For anybody here who lives in California or who plans on being out there around that time I have seven words for you, "You've got to see Stevie Wonder Live!!!" I saw him last year and let me tell you that I was totally blown away. Last year's list of guests included Tyrese, Babyface, Brian McKnight, Musiq Soulchild, Ja Rule and Ashanti, and India. Arie. Please don't miss it because I definitely won't.

Hallo LED,

I am a fan of Stevie, and hope you will not against, if I have make a link to you by the Bit4Sale.com ?

I wish, we don't forget this great man!

Natural WonderNov 4, 2002 (23h10)
Hi Guys. Sorry to keep plugging away.
But to everyone in the UK. Natural Wonder, the UK's only live tribute to the man himself, are playing at the
Lowry centre, in Salford Quays, Manchester. Anyone who fancies coming down, get in touch and i'll give you the
ticket information. The date is January 19th.

You may never get to see Stevie play live again, but you can now see a live tribute to him and his fabulous work.

RESENov 4, 2002 (16h52)
Stevie I have loved you everysince I was little and my dad turned me on to you. I'm 21 and I love your
music. Songs like: All I do, Ribbon in the Sky, Superstious and These Three Words are beautiful. You're also
a beautiful musician that I hope to be. Thank you

my whole life my parents brought me up with old r&b artists and my favorite has always been stevie wonder. his songs help me thru every situation in my life. im only 16 but i truly appreciate all of mr. wonders music. he is the main reason why i love music so much. he so creative and versatile. he is absolutely amazing.

JillNov 3, 2002 (14h59)
I've only just found this forum but feel compelled to contribute. Stevie's music has sustained me during a really painful year in my life. Through him I've found solace and the way forward has become clearer. I had a particularly bad year as a teenager in 1976, that's when I discovered 'Key of Life' and that helped me through then too. Thank you Stevie for your massive contribution to both music.. and the planet as a whole. it is a better place for having you here.

HenNov 3, 2002 (01h28)
Peace to all the fellow Stevie Wonder fans expressing their love for the man. I too anxiously anticipated the BET performance. I find it amazing how many different feelings and conotations Stevie's new song, "I can't imagine love without you", brings into people's minds. How many different songs in his catalog it reminds people of. The song it reminded me of is "As", because in this song, just like in "As", he uses a number of metaphors, where he's basically saying, "It would be impossible for me to stop loving you", or "it would be impossible for me to love if you didn't exist. And he goes on naming things that can not happen, to prove how unlikely it would be his love for the person ( or humanity) would die. I feel it's a brilliant lyrical concept and it moves me to tears. It's passionate and intense to an extreme. I also found it interesting that just like "As", you could also put this new song into a spiritual context. The Bible say's God is Love, so you could look at this song in the context of, " I can't imagine LOVE without God." I think Stevie does this by being a little vague, he dosent say Baby, or make any references to making love or anything sexual, so it comes out like a really spiritual kind of love. I dug the tribute, didn't dig everybody's performance, but it was so wonderful to hear so much of Stevie's music at once, I'm only twenty, so I've never seen Stevie live, he's mainly been a character

Stevie Wonder is the greatest soulman, his music makes me cry (no pain but happiness)
and my dream would be singing with him...it's a dream!!
So, Stevie, if you read this, i love you, continue and see you soon!!!

Eric BNov 2, 2002 (03h23)
The new song reminds me of Make Sure You're Sure and Mr. & Mrs Little Ones. It's noce as is, and if he puts it on the album, I would hope he would keep out the strings, heavy bass and backbeat he has been adding to ballads like this. That's the way everyone else produces their songs, and he had a unique sound without that.
During the show there was a Target commercial that had him doing "Christmas Song" in piano with India Irie. So much better than the "someday at christmas" version, and the clavinet version on the site that was linked to here below was even better.

bkNov 2, 2002 (01h45)
Well,even though Stevie does not like downloading,most of the guys have listened to that new song.With its jazz feel,its ressemblance to "My love",bits of "If you really love me"slow bits,Bits of"You and I",i would say it was a very good song indeed.The main line is pretty strong.It sounds at times like something of "Stevie at Christmas" i.e."Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...jack frost nipping at your door....etc"...and has a quaint/twee sort of feel.
lets face it,we needed something new.That Geocities site has a mighty list of unreleased tunes.
I have learnt about his current partner and child,and that he's betting on a may release for his new album.Overall he,s odviously not
lost his humility and enormous musical talent.So Stevie i will listen to my mini-disc copy and at the trisk of being a hypocrite i will admit to just this once a full download.I confess also to having bought every album you have ever released.Does S.I.T.K.O.L.really need to be sold from £19.99 to £24.99 in the U.K.?As for the Definitive collection coming out before Xmas,i guess that in the U.K.we
really do get a raw deal.So Stevie "you have not done nothing",but indeed 7 years is a bloody long time to wait.3 compilation albums later.This site is testimony to true loyal fans who know the past SW history.Give us a break from these needless delays.

shawnta wheelerNov 1, 2002 (18h54)
My mother is 62, My brother is 45, My sister is 32, and I am 20. We all love your songs. There isn't a songs that you made that I haven't like. I just want to say that you are the best singer that I ever heard, and you are number one in my book. I hope that God will bless you all the days of your life.
