Sesame Stevie

Stevie Wonder did a fantastic version of "Superstition" on Sesame Street. I remember seeing this on TV at the time and marveling at the kid who's rocking it out on the fire escape. Appreciation for Stevie's genius came later. This goes on for a while, but I'm guessing you'll be in no hurry for it to end.

Incidentally, look at the size of his hands.

Thanks for posting this, Pat. "Superstition" is unquestionably one of the best songs ever written. I have musical fantasies, where I wish I played a certain instrument with a certain band during a certain album or song. To name a few: saxophone for Sting during BRING ON THE NIGHT and on his SNL performance of "Little Wing"; back-up singer for Pink Floyd on MOMENTARY LAPSE OF REASON; and of course bass guitar for Stevie on "Superstition".

Glad you liked it, Steph. I would like to be one of the horns on Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic" or the Band's live take on "Don't Do It." I'd be adding color, but I'd also be standing back and letting the artists do their thing.
