500 Albums Challenge 4/500: Songs In The Key Of Life-Stevie Wonder

  1. Love’s In Need Of Love Today- Wow, just 1 and a half minute into it, I’m already loving it! A very chill vibe and Stevie got an attractive voice. I also love the way the background vocals sang. Definitely a perfect song.
  2. Have A Talk With God- Well, I just don’t really like the instruments playing at the background. Still an interesting song but I definitely like the first one more.
  3. Village Ghetto Land- Sings about life in the ghetto. Love the lyrics cuz they are real. I can feel how life in the ghetto is like just by reading the lyrics.
  4. Contusion- Alright, but what is this really? Disco music? Is sounds pretty good though. :)
  5. Sir Duke- So I did a little research and knew that this song was a single of the album. No doubt this is catchy as well, and I’m loving it! The chorus is so tight that I can’t remove it from my brain lol.
  6. I Wish- So another single to the album. This one got a typical 70s feel, in my opinion. Still, there’s a reason that this is made as a single. :)
  7. Knocks Me Off My Feet- This is a slow song. I really love the verses, but the chorus somehow lacks some power.
  8. Pastime Paradise- Wow!! When I heard the intro I was like, damn, this is so familiar! Then I recalled that I’ve heard it from “Gangsta’s Paradise.” That song must have sampled Stevie Wonder. The melody is so freaking catchy. I basically hummed through the entire song.
  9. Summer Soft- Okay, the start of the song is stunning. But don’t really like the focus that much.
  10. Ordinary Pain- I thought the song was over at 2:40 but I was wrong though. I can feel real emotion in it. Though I wonder who’s the female singer for the second half.
  11. Isn’t She Lovely- Pretty up-tempo. Still, there’s a reason this song is made a single. Super catchy song, love it!
  12. Joy Inside My Teats- Sweet love song :)
  13. Black Man- Another song talking about racism problems/discrimination. Really loving the message Stevie’s trying to convey. None of the songs today are that deep.
  14. “Ngiculela — Es Una Historia — I Am Singing”- A Spanish song, interesting.
  15. If It’s Magic-
  16. As- Why, but the song got 90s G-Funk vibe. Still super catchy! Also beautifully written, just like any other Stevie song.
  17. Another Star-
