Fading Star

Stevie Wonder, like Michael Jackson, is talented in both music and lyrics. I consider this album his best but a greatest hits would include 3 times as many tracks. "Superstition" is a song that has always puzzled me in that it doesn't seem to fit the rest of his work, nor does it fit with the rest of pop. Creatively it may be his best achievement, but I would like to know the story behind it. As a musician I greatly appreciate the complexity, depth and variety of his compositions, and he's very hard to cover! He has the musical knowledge to compose for films, etc. But I wonder what's happened to him of late. Did being blind and somewhat dependent on other's help limit his ability to engage with the outer world and therefore stifle his growth? Is the good life seducing him from his talent? Think of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Billy Joel--These guys have continued to create AFTER being icons. Stevie seems to be going the way of Elvis. Comments?
