2 I Just Called to Say I Love You I Just Called to Say I Love You

One of my favorite songs of all time.

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!

3 Living for the City Living for the City

An instant classic that shoots from the hip. No niceties here, just the plain old truth. This was written long ago and still applies today, actually things are worse today than before.

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

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.

4 Sir Duke

Whoever commented that the phrase "Sir Duke" has nothing to do with the song needs to first look up the lyrics to the song and then go look up who Duke Ellington was.

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.

5 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.

6 Isn't She Lovely

I just like that it's dedicated to his child. Out of all his songs, I find myself singing this the most.

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

Good... But I wish is fab

I LOVE THIS SONG!

7 My Cherie Amour

One of the best love songs ever. Up there with something.

Lovely as a summer day

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

8 Higher Ground

Should be in the top 3!

I love this song. Chili Peppers cover was top draw too.

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.

9 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!

10 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

Practically poetry set to music. - truckturner

Perfection!

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.

11 For Once in My Life

One of the best songs to I've ever listened, it brings me into a really good mood.

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

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.

12 Ebony and Ivory
13 Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours

How is this song not higher up on the list?

14 That's What Friends are For
15 Lately

Hols so many memoris

One of his most underappreciated gems.

16 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.

17 Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday

Feel good song of great moments

18 Knocks Me Off My Feet
19 Master Blaster

Excellent

Seriously a top 5 for sure

Come on people this song is the funkiest rootiest most joyous song ever

That bass and that voice. Best. Period.

21 Fingertips, Part 2

Amazing and he was only 12 years old.

Harmonica.

22 I Believe
23 A Place in the Sun
24 I Was Made to Love Her

This is a great song, move it up!

Stevie's voice is so great on this song and Jamerson's bass line is sick!

25 You are the Sunshine of My Life

Easily his best song, other than maybe "Living for the City".

Great tune. One of my best stevie's song.

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

My favorite

43 With a Child's Heart
44 Whereabouts
45 Too High
46 Another Star

Amazing song, just a feel-good song. Should be higher than 40.

This my favorite right now but my all time favorite is LOVE'S IN NEED OF LOVE TODAY!

47 You and I

Most romantic song - perfect wedding song. Wish I could find the original very grainy but great video of Stevie singing this with his afro back in 1985.

48 Until You Come Back to Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)

One of my all time songs favorites sung by Aretha Franklin!

49 Happy Birthday

This song is a tribute song to a great man and is worthy of him as it is both profound and celebratory. Cannot believe no one is voting for this
