Musical prodigy, political activist, inspiration to the world for just being outstanding, yea I am talking about Stevie Wonder. One of my favorite musicians who I listen to on a weekly basis to get my “Wonder fix.” He has always inspired me to be brave, and embrace everything you are doing with what it is that you love, not caring who is watching or what anyone else is thinking or how they might be judging you. One of my biggest obstacles when I was really young and being on stage, especially when it came to music, was screwing up, wondering if people were judging me down in the audience, what if my voice cracks, were they going to laugh? Stevie Wonder with his brilliance, courage and ability to capture the audience, you would never guess that he had any type of ailment. So seeing him in a concert, on stage, on the television I had to realize that all my fears were just silly, and they weren’t real, just dumb “superstitions” you might say. Anytime I feel nervous or any of these silly fears come back I have to remember the greats like Stevie, and I just shut my eyes and remind myself that you can’t care what the rest of the world is thinking. You just have to exude love, and people just seem to gravitate to that energy.
Very superstitious, writing’s 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.”
Stevie Wonder’s musical greatness is something that is very tricky to tamper with, when he is sitting at that piano fingers dancing on the keys like they were really part of his skin, you quiver with so much excitement, I know I do! Upon hearing this remix from Monolith I was a little apprehensive, but he gives it the right twist and punch with out taking away from the magnificence that is Superstition. You hear the drum and bass with a little bit of a Michael Jacksons, Thriller theme thrown in there as well, perfect sound match up since the two have worked together and vibed so well. Superstition meet Thriller and out pops this little bit of unique fire… Wooo!
Hope everyone is still feeling alive and good on this beautiful Sunday evening, but don’t wind down too soon, enjoy!
