Historically, Friday the 13ths have been good to me. Yesterday may be been the best of them all, as I landed a job in my dream career. To celebrate, I’m posting this excellent Stevie Wonder song, Superstition. The lyrics to the chorus are: “When you believe in things that you don’t understand, then you suffer. Superstition ain’t the way.”
I LOVE the opening drum beat. It sets you right into the groove of the song. I also love the clavinet line – which I originally thought was a bass line (my bad). Wonder recorded both the drums and clavinet for this song. I think the sax and trumpet add a lot, too. Stevie Wonder is the best. And this song is one of my favorites – just as long as you keep the Jonas Brothers out of it.
