A Day Trip to Wonderland

I couldn't let Sir Stevie's 60th birthday go unblogged, so in keeping with this month's theme of a worldwide eye (and ear) we have..

Stevie Wonder himself re-rendering one of his 60s hits in Italian!!

Solo Te, Solo Me, Solo Noi



An as yet unreleased and untitled rarity, which I believe, this vid (filmed in Brazil) captures the only recorded appearance of.



Finally, a two-way team up on The Real Thing. A Wonder tune performed by Sergio Mendes with Stevie on keys..

Little Stevie 60 already? Happy Birthday to you. Two of my boys love Stevie Wonder, the other doesn't like the way he shakes his head. He says blind people asre annoying the heartless little sh*t!

I know what a bill Paolo - lucky Coventry..

My two have always have a pop at John Entwistle (or John Whistle as they think he's called) 'He's a bit stiff isn't he?' and now refer to one of the greatest bass players ever as The Stiff Man!

“I Don’t Know Why” 1969 Incredible isn’t he?
Fantastic footage Mondo, what a find...

oddly, the weirdest thing about this is that (little) Stevie is ONLY 60! I'm forever shocked when I hear how old people are these days, but expected him to be much older than that.

Someone at work saw him at the O2 last year (or the year before) and said he was still amazing - bet he did that "called to say I love you" tosh tho.

Like some say only 60! He's been around forever hasn't he.

Bit of a genius frankly.
