Top 10 Stevie Wonder Songs

Stevie Wonder needs no introduction. The singer, songwriter, producer and musician made his mark on music in the 1960s when, at age 11, he was signed by Berry Gordy to Motown’s Tamla label. His first album, The jazz soul of Little Stevie, was released in 1962 when he was 12 years old. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Wonder started having hits in the mid-’60s with “Uptight (Everything’s Alright)”, “Blowin’ in the Wind”, and “I Was Made to Love Her”. But it was in the late ’60s and ’70s that Wonder released the hits “For Once in My Life”, “My Cherie Amour” and “Signed Sealed Delivered I’m Yours”.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better for the singer/songwriter, the ’80s solidified Wonder’s superstardom as “I Just Called to Say I Love You” (1984) and “Part- Time Lover” (1985) rocketed to the top of the R&B, Adult and Hot 100 charts.

With 30 full-length albums to his credit (not including his 18 compilation albums), Wonder has had ten US number-one hits on the pop charts, as well as 20 number-one R&B hits, and has sold over 100 million records.
