I know I said I wasn't going to post anymore music videos for awhile, but it is almost 2 in the morning and I am feeling inexplicably funky.
I can't say that I am a Stevie Wonder fan, per se. I mean, I recognize the fact that Stevie Wonder is something of a legend, but that doesn't mean that he hasn't put out some horrible, horrible music. Still, "Superstition" is about as fly a song as there is. When people ask me why I don't like modern R&B, I can point to this song and say "Because it is nowhere near as good as this." and be totally, unequivocably correct. No one in today's R&B scene can make a song better than this. No one. Not the funk, not the groove, not the voice. I am certain that there are a few modern singers who are able to sing along with it perfectly, but no one can make this song better or cooler, which is possibly the highest compliment I can think of for a song. That isn't to say that something cool doesn't come out once in awhile these days, but for the most part, it seems that R&B has been relegated to quasi-romantics who try to look street singing scales about getting laid. Obviously, I think that sucks, and I stand by that opinion.
Anyway, close your eyes and kick some mad flava in ya ear, my babies.
