Old School Friday: Stevie Wonder Tribute!

I have never met a person who did not love the music of Stevie Wonder. When I was a very small girl my teen aged uncle had the opportunity of seeing Stevie Wonder in one of his first concerts at the IMA Auditorium in Flint, Michigan when fingertips was all the rage. I recall being very jealous that I was unable to go. Some 40 plus years later I attended his concert last December. To read about the experience Click Here.

Since I never met a Stevie tune that I did not like, choosing a couple of songs was particularly difficult. I am going back to the beginning with "Fingertips" performed by a very young Stevie. The second song is one of my all time favorites by Stevie from the Music Aquarium album entitled "That Girl". My third choice is from arguably one of the best albums ever recorded by anyone anywhere, "Songs In The Key Of Life". The song "Knocks Me Off My Feet" shows a vulnerability that you do not hear in music recorded today.


This meme was developed by
Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine

Great minds think alike, however your version of Fingertips and the video were way cooler than mine. I liked the medley - That Girl is one of my Wonder favs and knocks Me Off My Feet is at the top of everyone's list. Great choices!

Beautiful! Fingertips still gets my toes tapping, and That Girl...that's me (or at least I like to think)!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Wait a second. I thought you hated "I Just Called To Say I Love You"?

I think you must be right... I can't think of anyone who wouldn't/doesn't like Stevie Wonder. Terrific archive video!

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Yesterday I discovered this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Playstation tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Fight Night game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
