Don't Wonder Why
Label: Universal/Island Def Jam
Signed, Sealed Delivered marks the beginning of Stevie Wonder's shift from the hit-focused Motown songwriting mentality to the funkier, more socially aware style that would dominate his work in the 1970s. You can hear Wonder's aesthetic changing, even as he's delivering pop tunes like the title track. Hidden gems include the lesser-heard "I Gotta Have A Song."
