Always loved this song for the first time I've heard it!

2 I Just Called to Say I Love You

Love the music composition.. Best ever.. Hearing since childhood

A similar song to this was submitted to Motown in New York City in 1982 and turned down

The most WONDERful song of his! The very tune of it- it gets you grooving and mushy at the same time! Intoxicating!

One of my favorite songs of all time.

3 Living for the City

A fantastic song about a black man growing up in "hard-time Mississippi", and sound effects of him walking around the city. - nick822

Amazing sound effects, definitely.

Only nonmusicians who do not understand music would like superstition more than this song

Or they interpret "best" to mean most enjoyable as opposed to a technical definition you seem to choose. It's possible and valid to recognize the superiority of the artistry and craft, but still prefer the other. - Billyv

THE. BEST. The synthesizer arrangements that are showcased here are just amazing!

4 Sir Duke

Everyone knows the tune of this song, and it has great lyrics where Stevie talks a lot about the world of music "Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand. " - nick822

I like the song and I have heard this many times not knowing who made it

Though the phrase "Sir Duke" has little or nothing to do with this song, it is very catchy and my favorite Stevie W. Song by far.

This song is amazing. I love his voice on this one, and the bassline is so good!

5 My Cherie Amour

Lovely as a summer day

This is song is really sweet and relatable to me. I know exactly how this song was about!

6 I Wish

I wish those day *horn blast* could *horn blast* come back once more!

I love the song I wish I listen to it all the time when I am not busy

Ebony And Ivory doesn't count!

I see myself doing all of the things the song speak about.

7 Isn't She Lovely

It's truly a beautiful song, and one of his best.

Good... But I wish is fab

I LOVE THIS SONG!

I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT THIS SONG IS NOT IN THE TOP TEN.
WHAT THE HELL THIS SONG IS THE BEST SONG EVER
THIS SONG WAS WRITTEN BY STEVIE WONDER FOR HIS OWN DAUGHTER
THIS SONG SINGS ABOUT HOW STEVIE WONDER LOVES HIS DAUGHTER
AND HOW BEAUTIFUL SHE IS.
THIS SONG MUST DEFINITELY BE THE VERY BEST SONG OF STEVIE WONDER.
NO DOUBT.

8 Part-Time Lover

Perfect songs, legend stevie

How to begin with? Rhythm? Lyrics? Passion? Vocals' Speed? Once you hear it, you'll never forget it. Sth like brainwash! Emotion revives a Special Love, even though the song implies the opposite..

God it's what I was looking for, love

This is the best for sure!

9 Knocks Me Off My Feet
10 Higher Ground

Yes, this really should be top ten. Not only the number of people who have done it but the diversity of the artists who have covered it.

Look at the number of others who have done this song. Everyone loves it, I'm real surprised it's not in top ten.

Just got even better after Red Hot Chili Peppers covered it

Not even on the top ten? Damn :(. My first place

The Contenders

11 As

The best song ever written. The words fit whether coming from a lover to another, from a parent to a child, or from god to you. Hearing these words said to you will get you through the roughest times

This song was the key song at a wedding I was in and I listen to it very well. I was able to appreciate the lyrics and the feeling this song was written to evoke.

Musically brilliant. Layered, deep, rich, powerful. Flawlessly written, produced, and performed. I'm a 60-something white guy, and have listened to this song repeatedly since I was 19-20.

Perfection!

A beautiful song, probably one of his most famous, this is the first song I heard of Stevie's. And loved it. - nick822

What a great slow dance song. To feel this way everyday would be something special.

One of the all time great love songs by a true musical genius. God bless you, Stevie.

Love this song, it was sung at my wedding!

I have listened to a lot of his songs a few times over, but this is the only one that instantly loved, so I have to say this is the best in my eyes and ears.

It's happy! And it makes me smile. - Britgirl

18 Lately

One of his most underappreciated gems.

19 You Haven't Done Nothin'

Stevie combined his funk with political statement here against the liar Nixon. "We are sick and tired of hearing your song, how you're going to change right from wrong"

Kool 105 & cruisin oldies 950 am.

Feel good song of great moments

Wow! This is a crime. This should be top five. I realize with Stevie, there's a lot to choose from, but wow.

One of the greatest recordings of its time... this should be higher! Great tune, in every way.

This should be in the top 5 of the best songs ever from Stevie Wonder

Great jazzy, feel-good tune, easily top 5!
