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!

Love this song me and nmy husband

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

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

Amazing sound effects, definitely.

Hard life never sounded so good. Songs in the key of life is his best album but this is his bes song.

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

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

Lovely as a summer day

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.

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

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

12 As

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.

Absolute best on his chronology.

My brother asks me to play at his

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

21 Fingertips, Part 2

Amazing and he was only 12 years old.


22 I Believe
23 Master Blaster

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

That bass and that voice. Best. Period.

24 You are the Sunshine of My Life

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.

Why is these 18th? Is a really good ballad, and one of the most important songs from the master of jazz Stevie Wonder. If you haven´┐Ż't listened it, DO IT NOW!
