So What the Fuss



Ah yeah, now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout. "So What the Fuss", the lead single from Stevie Wonder's upcoming A Time to Love disc (due out the first week of next month), is a funky R&B jam that is both old school and contemporary-sounding at the same time. It's a bit preachy, a bit funny, very insightful and knowing, and it has a groove so smokin' that it just won't let go...in other words, it's vintage Stevie.

The single, which features Prince on guitar and En Vogue on backing vocals, is a tonic to my old ears. It's been nearly a decade since Stevie dropped a new collection ("dropped"...I'm so hep I scare myself sometimes :-) and I'm looking forward to the new CD even more than I (a lifelong fan of the man) was already.

Bring it on, Mr. Morris, bring it on.

That sounds like classic Stevie Wonder and, oh, how I've missed En Vogue. Give me something I can feel!

Thanks for the notice! I've been waiting for this album ever since last fall when it was originally due out. Glad to hear he's in good form.

Little Stevie Wonder. Brings back lots of nice memories of my youth growing up in the Detroit area, getting hooked on both the Beatles and Mowtown at the same time! I especially liked the Temptations back then. Those were the days!

Um...I meant Motown!
