Stevie Wonder, Soul Train,Superstition , Q & A.

What a rare find this morning.  Young Stevie Wonder doing a Q & A on Soul Train. He is so gifted.  People were dancing on shows to music back then. This was brilliant. Look at the smiles on people faces in this era?  People look happy compared to all those fake reality shows now, don’t you think? People were dancing their butts off and they were fit back then. But my favorite music television series was Solid Gold. 

We will just reminisce on Young Stevie this morning.  Remember, it breaks my heart to remind you Stevie was lip singing. Stevie played instruments called a Hohner Clavinet and Moog synthesizer bass. The trumpet and tenor saxophone was respectably played by Steve Madaio and Trevor Laurence. It was Stevie Wonder’s lead single, from his fifteenth album, Talking Book.

Superstition

Very superstitious, writings on the wall,
Very superstitious, ladders bout’ to fall,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin’ glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past

When you believe in things that you don’t understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain’t the way

Very superstitious, wash your face and hands,
Rid me of the problem, do all that you can,
Keep me in a daydream, keep me goin’ strong,
You don’t wanna save me, sad is my song

When you believe in things that you don’t understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain’t the way, yeh, yeh

Very superstitious, nothin’ more to say,
Very superstitious, the devil’s on his way,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin’ glass,
Seven years of bad luck, good things in your past

When you believe in things that you don’t understand,
Then you suffer, Superstition ain’t the way, no, no, no

The Band, Ten Years After sings – I’d Love to Change the World

from the album: “A Space In Time” (1971)

Seems appropriate to break out this song/video. Was one of my High School favorites .  Over 40 years later, the words have meaning. Those guitar rifts are brilliant.

ALVIN LEE, R.I.P.
Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
‘Til there are no rich no more  I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you, Population keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money, No none for meI’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you. Oh yeah!World pollution, there’s no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Senators stop the war, I’d love to change the world
But I don’t know what to do
So I’ll leave it up to you
