THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
1973-Number 11 single.
Best Bit-At 0.11.Over the years I have heard many bands at functions totally murder this song,thankfully it hasn’t affected the way I still think about it.
The English guitarist Jeff Beck and Stevie Wonder(see also best songs 920-843-834-682-570 and 366) had an admiration for each others work and they collaborated on the early sessions of what was to become Wonder’s 1972 Album ‘Talking Book.’Wonder normally played nearly all of the instruments on his records but was always on the lookout for a top guitarist.The iconic opening drumbeat on this song was written by Beck with Wonder improvising over the top of it.
‘Superstition’ tells us not to believe in things that we have no proof exist.Doing things such as knocking on wood or not walking under ladders will only end up messing with your mind.
‘When you believe in things that you don’t understand then you suffer,superstition ain’t the way.’
