Stevie Wonder, The Woman In Red [OST] (1984)
It’s sorta staggering to think that I Just Called To Say I Love You was a #1 smash hit and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Or – it’s not hard to believe at all. But anyway, the soundtrack to the film The Woman In Red is the nadir for Stevie Wonder. There’s his name plastered on the cover – and some of the very worst music he’d ever make. And the film was shit too. And you see this album in second-hand stores, junk shops, old bookstores, garage sales, everywhere…so many copies sold. So many unwanted. I haven’t wanted my copy for about 15-20 years now…but I can’t part with it. I like to think I’m such a Stevie Wonder fan I’ll one day see the good in this. Well, the truth is already out – the good in this is never playing it.
