Yeah, I almost picked that one too. Wonder has always had a little infatuation with reggae. I think Master Blaster is a very underrated Wonder song.

It's really difficult to choose from among Stevie's ballads. Not that it's any easier to select his "best" uptempo songs...

His ballads are almost all way to gloopy for my tastes.

I see your point, but somehow I accept gloppy more from someone who can do Living in the City, Sir Duke and We Can Work It Out than from someone who can do only gloppy. Why I forgive McCartney for, say, The Long and Winding Road, Besides, it -- like the Wonder ballads -- are very well constructed.

I won't argue with you.
I still like them (usually) but I find them much more cloying than McCartney's - even TL&WR.
And I could never put one in my top twenty of his songs.

Actually, scrap all that.

I always forget - probably because so many others do, too - his 60s material. For my money, none of what he produced in the next decade matches up to 'Fingertips', 'Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday', or 'For Once In My Life'. So I'll take those three.
