"stevie wonder" Discussed on The Culture Quest

"Synthesizer here it's too bright to to light that no i don't like it. It's not a bad song just didn't work for me. I skipped it. This something cooky about song that i like say that yeah i don't know i. It gave me familiar familiarity. How do you pronounce a spinner. How do you pronounce six. I dunno i just go. Nicaragua stuff Historic that one. If anyone wants to google it i. I'm not a fan of this song. I think this is the only song. I really didn't like Like further than just skipping this song. I just don't like the song but this is the only one so while the album is not exactly the genre that i grew up listening to or the styles i most connect with. I always had kind of a warm spot in my heart for for this kind of music. I just love the drums and the bass in the album. I love the catchy songs. I enjoy leading. The deeper songs can grow on me but still just just because it's in a different style than what i listen to. It's not going straight to the top of my all time favorite albums by having said that i feel like i've made a special connection with this album now. I probably wouldn't gotten to know this album if we didn't do it for the podcast and through this experience and got to know album. That feels important. It feels like it has been some gravity field in in some way and to find out. How many songs. I already knew on my i. Listen made me think of how much playtime these songs probably guts. How many times they were covered sampled or and it makes me feel like you know people just love these songs and i. It's hard to describe. But i feel that while i don't get all of these songs and i don't like don't entirely get the the meaning of this album. I can sense how important in great it is it's like this album is kind of radiating radiating light in some way. This was a special experience. I'm really glad we've done this. I'll joining. I think the same i kept hearing about severe wonder but never thought that i'll take the time to to actually listen to it and take a deep dive and i gotta say that i think this is i. I'm not sure if i was able to say it about the other albums that we did although i really i don't think they really i really sorry situation where they're even playing the background and i can definitely say about about this one really fun and nice vibe you. It's it's kind of hard for albums to kind of get through to you like you said before that you know you kind of know in a listener to if an album kind of works for you if it collects for you and i think that most of the album's we've done so far while you kind of you like those. But most of those just didn't click for you. You're saying that this woman did click in the way that you know. I got some albums and musicians. That i feel that they touched something really deep and i need to keep exploring them. Yeah so it didn't get there but it's just delightful. I thought it was a pretty good album. I wasn't over the moon with it by. I had a good time. But i don't know there's something about like recording podcasts. And like listening to like. Oh my favorite songs and then listening to your favorite songs and then trying to come out with like a song. I didn't like and condo struggling a little bit. I think i liked it more like this might be a little bit of a problem with how long it is. Sometimes i got lost a little bit and like forgot like where i was in the album. Because there's so much stuff which you don't get like kid. I which has ten songs. You know. Basically any other albums down except swift. Yeah but i think actually did like it more than i let on the stott. So i'd say this is definitely above pet. Sounds to me like a rung above pet. Sounds a and join us some of the songs that i liked. I really liked some of the songs that i thought were okay. We're really like really okay. You know some other people will really okay like some some will like when i say that i mean like if i if i go to even some of my favorite albums and say oh you know this songs like not like bit of a date cop night. Not ever on this. It's not really going to be anyone's favorite song. But like with your favorite song said gee like i thought that was k- yet someone else's favorite song and i'm sure that's the case with a lot of these songs so yeah I think there's a lot to love to this like i do. Read it pretty highly. I think like the measure of an album. From as like i usually when i'm looking albums to listen to To my music than two albums. And then i look for an album cover and often we listen to blue. I just like took it out of my albums. And same with taylor swift's folklore. Same pet sounds actually as well from your library. Yeah yeah really Like i never want to hear it again. But if i want to listen to it i'll i'll just like search for like one on my list because i might always scrolling through it and this one i think might actually keeping my list. This is something. I could see myself flight. Listening to say for instance if there's another stevie wonder album that i wanna listen to you. Listen to that album. Also have this one as well. Like i don't know like just to have listen next to it. You know like maybe if i get bored of the other album something that put this one on. I think okay this around. They saw on this. One is like yet connick apple. Actually for me. i'll mention. I listened to a couple other stevie wonder albums talking book from nineteen seventy two and inner visions from nineteen seventy-three. And i have to say. That one's quite yeah. They're they're simpler. They're not as well produced their raw in comparison with this one. But i just love the sound. I love the dirty guitarist. I love the the. There's a bunch of it's funny to say but they're filled with songs. they've recognized as well sung. They didn't know wonder songs there. I guess he gets a lot of airtime. Because i just recognized more and more of these songs deeper get into stuff so as we do at the end of each step of our quest. We're going to take a vote that will decide whether or not stevie wonder's songs in the key of life has a place in the culture quest essentials guide aka the quick. We.

Somebody's waiting outside the delivery for so andrew came across a paper in the journal. Frontiers in psychology which. I was so charmed by that. You've read as we can talk about it. It's called acquisition of a joystick operated video task by pigs. How could i forget for the listener. I'll just explain. These experiments were carried out at penn state university. There were four pigs. A pair of yorkshire pigs named hamlet an omelette and a pair of panna pinto micro pigs named ebony and ivory. I guess after stevie wonder and paul mccartney or the song of that name or after piano keys and the paper describes what the pigs were and were not able to learn in these experiments manipulating video game joystick with their snouts. And what i really want to know is tell us how it changes your thinking as a psychologist if it all about non human animals their capabilities. The way we should think about them perhaps differently about ourselves differently. Well thank you for broadening. My academic horizons. I would not have read this paper on video games and makes were it not for our friendship so i i will just say that when i read this line i literally laughed out loud after twelve weeks of training. Hamlet and omelette were terminated from the experiment because they had grown too large no fit within the constraints of the test pen. Academic research is tough. You lose fifty percent of your research pool just like that so anyway now down to two test subjects by the way. So one of my intuitions is that one ought not an. I understand that this research is hard. But maybe not generalize to olive pig them based on this very small number of pigs because look at wilbur wright some pig yeah so maybe ebony or ivory were some one of them was much better than the other in the research so there's various across pigs even yes.

And what's interesting is that you were a very talented are very talented singer. But you are a tremendous stand comic I know lester you had some great jokes in those days. The punchline and he used to he was straight man. I was the guy that did remember you being funnier than willie. That's good will i. I had one more question for leicester.

Make Your Zoom Meetings Soar Remote Work John Paul Mendocha - burst 14

"Doing Zoom and working remotely because that's the world that we're currently living in today, and it's probably going to be the world that we're going to be living in for not just. A short period of time but because we're starting to understand that you know what we can get a lot of work done remotely in very a lot of industries we need to grasp, hold its concept being able to do as zoo meeting and do it right all right, and so we're we're GonNa talk about some of these little pieces here as we finish up here in this hour so. Let's talk about a couple of really we you talked about the green screen, but I think one of the things that two things that we need to talk about is audio and video. And bring up to really fabulous points and I am right on it and Let's. Let's talk about the video portion I, what should we know about video because we can make some mistakes there Why I think the the first mistake that we make is that is that when we get into the whole realm of video. We immediately go. Hey High def right I want high. DEF. and. All that sounds good because of course, we're watching I definitely and television and by the way watching something happened. Is Infinitely more. Is Easier and simpler than you actually making it happen. So you want to look at your resolution and see if you can actually tone down your resolution because. They're probably not gonNA WANNA see four K or whatever. And by the way very few people have the bandwidth to do four K. Right now. So video is important and and you WanNa make sure that you understand how your video works, how how it's going to be put together and you can. You could start out inexpensively and you can go very expensively You can actually get a really decent zoom call out of a iphone or android with with a face with a front facing camera. But what you WanNa do you WanNa get a stand and have this stand hold it instead of you because let's face it. If if you're holding your camera, you know if you're holding like this way you know and you've got this little jitter will cause your hand will get tired and you're doing this stuff You're not going to be not going to be very effective. So just make sure that you understand that and and you know. Test see what is like also, you can make videos on your on your PC, your Mac you know on your laptop makes videos and see what the camera it looks like. Big Mistake that people make is they got nostril cam going that's great. You know which one I'm talking about right. Looks like it looks like Sherwood forest up there but you know you got these guys who they don't even they're clueless by the way if you want to know how to make your laptop, go up up up, I will give you the cheap way to do it. You could go get some paper that would go into your printer and just keep stacking up keep stacking up. Reams of paper until have the right line of sight. So people aren't looking up there and going. I wonder. Don't want them to wonder, hey, how's how's that? For a really inexpensive way to do that and you're right you know you can take books or whatever to raise your laptop if you don't have a separate camera, I think probably you and I, I have a camera on a tripod that's a USB camera attached here so I'm looking right at it, but you don't have to have. That you don't have to spend that money to do that type of thing. So you most as you point out in the book, most of your laptops have a camera in there. Let's get rid of knows. Kim Let's. Let's get some books and let's get that. Let's get that raised there. So we can see you right. Let's talk about audio. Let's talk about audio because I think we we think that because Ron video that audio is not important, but it really is critical. Isn't it? Audio's very important. Now, I I happen to prefer just because of my personal style and what I do is I wear I, wear a gaming headset so you can go buy a gaming headset for seventy. Bucks. Plug into a USB and it does a good job. It it. You know it sounds good by the way it kills lots of surrounding noise and that makes me the MIC stand. You know. So matter how much moving my head and it's funny because I, what I'm. Looking at buying headsets I was talking to. Somebody. Who is really a good audio engineering and we're talking about my problem, which is I had a really nice microphones like Jay has in fact, I have several but the problem is I would come off center. So my volume would keep getting funky and changed and he said, well, tell me how much you move your head and I said, well, it's got like halfway between Ray Charles and Stevie. Wonder. and. Said Okay here's the solution. The solution is you have to be the Mike Stand. So I bought actually have multiple headsets but for for seventy bucks at a best buy, you can buy cheaper but you know you now have this and it's great isolation people are I watch a lot of people who take the little headset that comes with their phone and they have that they're holding the microphone up to them and let's face it a microphone. That's the size of a pinhole. That's that's what your voice is being replicated through. Right so you spend a few bucks you'll get a, it'll be a lot better. Some people don't like to wear these because it makes them look I. Don't know whatever. But you know you gotta think in terms of a good microphone and you can get pretty decent microphones for less than one hundred bucks.

What Is Castoreum, and Why Is It in My Food?

Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio

What Is Castoreum, and Why Is It in My Food?

"We're talking about one of my favorite topics. Which is the food industry in America? Going back to the beginning of synthetic flavors in the nineteenth century. So let's get into the weird history. Kastoria him I don't know if I pronounced that proper but I read that I always fell off my chair. So this comes from a beaver and beavers were hunted. I thought because the beaver hats but I guess for this what is Kastoria. Where does it come from? And how is he is? Okay so let me tell you about how I found out about this ingredient when I first started writing about and talking about the history of of artificial flavors. I'd sometimes get this weird question from somebody. In the audience somebody raised their hand. And say is fake vanilla actually beaver but and and the first time. I heard it. I was a little taken aback. I was like No but I looked into it a bit and the thing. That's being called beaver. But is an ingredient called CA- story him. That isn't actually derived from the beaver anal gland but from gland next to the anal gland so near but but not quite but and important distinction. We might be important to sanction and beavers. Use It to To mark their territory and for other beaver ish things But it has long been an important ingredient in perfumery as other animal. Musk's have been and there's a lot of overlap between perfumery and flavors so historically it's very expensive ingredient you know once I figured this out this part of the perfume part of the story. I started answering. The question of is faithful reliever but with no beaver but is way too expensive to be used in fake vanilla by then. Was it used for a while for that? Well I started looking a little bit deeper into the history of vanilla flavors especially before the pure food and drug act and I saw that sometimes. Musk would be listed as an ingredient. Not specifically beaver. Musk musk a small amount. And then I started talking to flavor US especially older flavors about this and one flavor is told me He had trained at one of the big flavor. Houses in the nineteen seventy s flavor by the crafts people really who who build the artificial flavors or the natural flavors The flavor additives in foods and beverages. He was a novice and the flavors who he was training under made him prepare. Kastoria extract as part of one of the routine tasks of learning how to do it and so he got kind of this tray of Beaver glandular sacs and he had to turn them into an extract. This is what they do. The New Guy Right now your first day he. Here's here's some beaver sacks we want you to extract the the compound his his the master flavors training him said I. Had you do that to see if you had the heart of a flavor rest? So when it was used in flavors which was rarely it was used in really small quantities just kind of to add a certain nuance maybe to the very best vanilla flavorings certain Genet Sekwa. Yeah so I think it was also used some terms in raspberry flavorings But what I found was that in the eighties. It's it almost stopped being used entirely. In fact I couldn't find anybody who had any memory of ever using it who worked in the industry for the reason that in the eighties. A bunch of the big food and beverage companies started striving to make their products. Kosher is not kosher many things but it not kosher okay. So let's fast forward to today's world where artificial is a real problem for a lot of food manufacturers? You mentioned That trick. Cereal tried to switch to natural colors and ditch the high fructose corn Syrup and that really didn't work out too well for them. They got really dull colors. So what is the industry doing now that they've created you know three or four thousand artificial flavors and colors and now a lot of consumers want products. That don't have them. It really depends on the on the case anybody. Who's gone to a supermarket within the past? Five years has almost certainly notice that all kinds of familiar brands now are proclaiming. Nothing heard official rate no artificial flavors even things where it just seems so ridiculous like natural cheetos right. So what are all natural cheetos? What does that mean well? I can't really answer that. In fact nobody can natural flavors are defined right? If you look on an ingredient list and you see an item that says natural. Flavors there's actually you can go to the code of federal regulations and you can read what that means. It means fruits leaves skins seeds from natural. Yes exactly and artificial. Is Everything else? But there's a lot of ingredients that kind of straddle the line or ways of processing that kind of straddle the line a major class action court case recently In the past ten or so years has been about orange juice. Tropicana orange juice. It's is it a one hundred percent juice. Well it is but it's actually juice that's been re combined with flavor packs right of so basically. It's been everything in it comes from orange juice but it's been processed to a degree that some consumers claim that it no longer counts as a natural product. So so the the conundrum here is what is natural because as you said it may all be derived from a plant or from a fruit. But there's a lot of processing going on so it may be natural but it's heavily processed. The second thing is if a Cheeto is natural doesn't mean it's good for you know it's still a cheeto which probably is not very good for you so there's a lot of complexity here in terms of if the consumer wants to eat foods that are good for them just because it's natural is no guarantee that's good for you right right absolutely while the definition of natural is still sort of up in the air it carries so much cultural meaning we associate it with the kinds of images that you see on the front of packages of foods that call themselves natural right pastoral groves and this kind of harmlessness and this kind of good for you ness right you you. Can you feel safe assuming that something natural is good for you and also good for the planet and I think that when you look at the way that the kind of environmental cost for instance of relying on an all natural food chain or things that kind of reasonably fall into what we consider natural that costs might be much higher than using processing technologies are ingredients that we might consider synthetic so? There's always a kind of balance here

Brown Sugar: A Tribute to Hip-Hop

"I saw brown sugar. I was completely taken over by the music of course it's the first thing you notice about the movie the wonderful wonderful tribute to hip hop and owed love letter however you want to call it hip hop that permeates every scene in movie this because eight chess turn but the thing that carried me through watching it over and over and over again was the relationship between Sydney played by Sonali Johnathan and trae played by Taye Diggs. Their relationship is as equals not something I grew up watching calms. It's not something that I saw men and and women respecting each other to other as if they both believed each other to be intelligent equal human beings and their relationship gave me hope for what love could be wasted US whereas Philip Too potlucking at the block party you remember. I beat machine boy. You thought You d nice not our eight. Oh eight this simplicity provides a fine line between eloquence. That's implying. This has a dope. Line was my first published article. I can't wait for you to come out when you left I went out to. La Times every Wednesday a Yo com go to the park and read. It made me feel closeted love brown sugar. We begin the movie with Sydney entry as kids first learning and falling in love with hip hop and this love of hip hop is what connects them throughout their life. Sydney becomes a writer and editor of powerhouse hip. Hop Magazine Andrey gets into the recording recording industry. He's the man behind the artists and he gets into this field because of his love of hip hop but both Sydney Andrey are struggling to reconcile this. It's ideallic love that they have of hip hop with the reality. Did you sign a new act without consulting drake. I saw and I had to sign the man Never Messina. Shit like that a black and white rapid duah. I know they go here Kamal Man. You know that's just a gimmick these guys they have like no skills just straight it up. Why now I saw last night a real MC. This cat deserves a shot. He came with the real original real real hip hop given them. I'm trying to sell records to people will actually buy them so I need a boob. Who's going to be able to give me that M. T. V. rotation baby now been akin ran and ten the heat of future Babe Eminem. He paved the way they gonNA be like Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder Paul McCartney and and Michael Michael Jackson. Are you serious. Yes you really want me to do this. If you want to work for a millennium records that's what we do here. We make hits as we see hip hop grow and change we also see Sydney Andrey grow and change and it was this intertwining of love and hip hop that really spoke to poet Nick George in fact when lead producer. Maya emailed him to talk about brown sugar trigger he had this to say when I first saw brown sugar. Both love and hip hop. were new things to me. I thought I understood both I also thought their utility in my life was simple and yet through this movie. It became apparent that both are unpredictable. One of the major themes is evolution and allowing a thing to grow beyond what we thought we knew you about it.

Squeeze into it knocking my head on the ceiling right but it's a loft so that's cool but i've yeah it's a very real thing you can't in an apartment in new york for any i mean shopping for apartments and you've got to spend money to just have room to move around even in my apartment right now. I can't even like do do a push up on the ground not that i try to do push ups all the time but like sometimes i do round and sometimes they just want to stretch you know like do like like stretch stretch my legs or something again that what are you six four. I'm six seven what that short. I take it back when i was younger in auditions editions and now at this point i'm on popcorn with peter travers so i feel like i can be honestly. I'm six seven. Wow yeah no yeah. There's a lot sometimes times. When you're auditioning actresses who are five one yeah well yeah i pretty much any any rule so if i if there's a father and and he's shorter than six to like i have no chance of playing his son really picking yoon about it. Yeah yeah yeah oh.

Luckily they weren't saying. I thought maybe it was like a jump. No she had this nice wooden pass to walk on and then she couldn't walk loudly because it would make noise on the wood so i sorta stuff is awkward. I guess maybe in a stone age of movies when alan ladd was with field rent in the boy on a dolphin.

I get another job exactly who i ever work again. That's part of the deal. Exactly you have to get. I used to it. I can't get used to it. It's like it's not i never well. I guess maybe right now.

Tougher have amine side dip yeah and and how does it manifest itself no no sorry. I'm sorry i'm sorry even didn't seem so me. No no wasn't wasn't before.

I was waiting for you on hold for the lyrics of a song that when I was trying to think back to that period of time. The oldest song that I could think of that made an impression on me that I would think to other people like just the chorus was like the hook was just had me. Hook was the Doobie brothers blackwater. Oh, yes. And that's such an amazing song. I was reading the lyrics like I said just right now while I was waiting for you and just composition. The music of that song the lyrics. It's it's it's just like high art, man. It's just amazing stuff. Yeah. This was oh here we go. This one guys get stuck in your head to and it is incredible. Art. Yeah. Yeah.

"Are you ever under dad's album? Yeah. Well that one I was too young. I was in the youth choir on one, okay? But yeah, no I have worked with my dad and record it with them in Britain form and whatnot. So we stay close. Did he trip out when you were like, I'm not only going to do gospel music? Yeah. Yeah. Nationally. Sure. Yeah. For sure that was there was some some pushback from my family, initially, mostly. I think in the beginning. They felt like it was just a rebellion. You know, a preacher's kid just rebel. Yeah. Why they once? No, I don't think. So I just felt like a genuinely wanted to talk about more than just God. You know? I just felt like there was there was so much more in creativity to talk about life. You know, all the things. I if you believe he's the creator of all things, then let's talk about all those things he created not jam, you know. So it wasn't a rebellion for me. It was just me feeling a need to talk about more. And I think when he saw that my purpose was, you know, as potent, you know, and as important, you know, you let go of that. And just got behind me like a like a great father. He's been my my biggest support system. But yeah, I'd be lying. If I if I said that he didn't have a dream of me like, you know, following footsteps for sure. Yeah. So you know, I I was in New Orleans one summer for an internship. And while I was there. It was I gotta go to paula's morten's church. And I did and it w-. Was amazing because he does this thing where he understands very well the theatrics in the timing you need to make a church service into make a song a church service pop. And so there's some song the choir singing, and he's like still sitting down because he hasn't gotten up yet. But the choir sings a song, you think the song is done the band brings back up. Your dad gets up from his seat goes to the lead singer takes things like it. Start singing bring it back. And he this is such a precise read of timing and pacing that is just impeccable. It's impeccable. I think I think part of that is is just instinct part of that is just he's been doing it for a long time. And you know, and for me, he he was the greatest teacher just being able to watch him, you know, le- lead over. Over people, and you know, control the room and be sensitive to a room. That's really what it comes down to being sensitive and being open. Yeah. So I couldn't help but become a study performer. You not got to watch him for years and years and not just watch him play behind him. You know, be connected to that same process. What is a thing that you find yourself always bring into your life show. So you're performances that you learned directly from him or saw all the time. You think the I think the involving people have watched I've been a part of things and watch things where people just perform to the audience, you know, but for me church was and what my dad did was involved. The people talk back to me sing with me. I always say, and I'm not exaggerating that I have the best sounding audience of any artists. Yeah. My audience can sing men always any city. They're harmonizing without me asking, you know. But I think the caller responses is definitely the the biggest thing I took from him. I wanna talk about another influence of yours, which anyone listening can hear Stevie Wonder, we actually asked you ahead of his chat to share with us. If you that you like to hear during the holidays UCS Stevie Wonder song called someday at Christmas postal. But it right now. Fan. Kids play with. Cimber hearts Swiss seat. Men.

"I don't know. It's it's, it's pretty busy. It's the other day I was done working out and Tehran Cape in home from work and just was shaking his groove thing all over the place. Like, you know, button face found thing is like, what are you doing? Listen to another star just like, oh, damn, okay. So that's crazy. One of my favorite memories with Stevie Wonder was I don't remember why, but are ants fannin Paul and uncle fan in polar staying at my parents place. And I woke up one morning and my dad had put on another star and my dad and baton were just like dancing around the kitchen, like making breakfast as another star played in, they rescind the Lalas and it was just like, it's like, so this. This album was so important to our parents. And when you think about it, like my dad will say like, you can't imagine what it was like animals came out. It was just like, how did this hat lick? It was the best thing to ever come out. And I totally believe that we, of course, like we get it all all at the same time as you discover it. But like, can you imagine this album coming out now? Like what? If one of your favorite. Titians had a few like really great albums before this. And then this thing came out and you're just like, what? Like it's the best present of all time. So you're saying it's like he's like seventies Drake is what you're saying. Sh- I know people like. Okay. I also we, we kind of skipped past it, but my all time hands down favorite Stevie Wonder song unquestionably knocks me off my. Of you. It's gorgeous. It also so much fun to sing. It is right in like any tenor. It is right in the comfort zone, even wanted like pops up. When even when the there's the key change on the second chorus. Like it's just perfect and it such. That's the sort of part where like every individual section of the song because it's just like verse pre chorus chorus. And then it repeats that. But each of those sections feels like it could be the chorus because it's so it's so very much its own moment, like the pre chorus of mixed weaken knots me of my feed. Oh, that's tricky. And then the reviews. It knocks me off. Off Maffei nuts. Me my feet. And then he goes into the actual course. I don't wanna. What. It's just like that that's speaking of some of the give me goosebumps when he when he pulls out that the like full real course for the first time, I'm just like, oh, God. That's right. Makes them we're the tones on this album are so all over the place that when he gets something like that, it doesn't feel cheesy. If later date Elms we're just like fucking ballot after ballot or mid temples log. You go through this like I can buy that because that also follows right after I wish one of the that funky base line that just comes in and rides and just overtakes everything when you're talking about joy. Like that's the thing is a lot of a lot of the balance to psych him in piano and it's sure, but here there's the swelling strings, and you can just hear that like the it's cheesy, but it's it's not cheesy because he's not just singing words like you towel. He means and every single moment of this song. And yeah, and you can. All everyone can relate is so beautiful. I, this was one seeing this one live. It was like maybe the for like everyone was singing this whole show, but this was like everyone was singing, and it was a great moment for me because I was saying. The women next to me. I love that. Right? And then like associates a singles. Great. Also, there's so many other songs. They don't think it as much as honestly black man, even though it's eight minutes long, that groove is just unbelievable. It's just super nes. Those. Because honestly the out fro with with the school children chanting, that doesn't start 'til minute five..

It's about like comfortably while another man. Yeah. And he and she's having a funky sexy time out there. Yeah. And it's funny to coming out of the sweetness of you are the sunshine of my life that select has a one to knock out for the intro of album to start with like the spirit sweet saw which is such a big hit and then to just like break it down funk style, maybe your baby. What an amazing. And then the third track is you and I, which is like a gorgeous ballad. That's an amazing restraining. Honestly, this album is just so solid. Like I have no complaints about the first seven tracks, and even even after that, I don't really have completes. They're just not just not all the son like this, but even like, honestly, that's the only like mess on on here. I love looking for another pure love again. It's just like it's very easy going just like it's not a ballad because it's really, it's. More of a jam session, but those like the harmony vocals on their mazing. You've got it bad girl, which is probably the least like Stevie Wonder young on here because it's just you got it then. Good. That's like that's like tool. Moto red could've recorded that. Listening tones EC, it's not it doesn't cringe invest, make you cringe. Nice, but then you get intermissions. Okay, let's hear. I don't need interventions. Of course. This is the last three. Yeah, I know. Yeah, we don't hate anything. I know exactly because interventions. I feel like it just kind of like it's an expansion on. It gets a little bit more visceral to sit a little bit more. Funky light, the things, uh, superstition is a great standalone pop single higher ground, like the levels and the bills, and all the aspects of it. Like it's such a mature rentable compass. I could possibly argue that no other song he ever recorded has better momentum than higher vests, like higher ground, just keep on truckin and just like he its own. I, I mean..

"He goes on his voice is a little bit, but it's just it's so great and it's just, I mean, that is that is what I come to Stevie Wonder, four. And then you have the rest of this album which is basically just sadness, the whole rest come on. Okay. I mean, Jared just wants to jump out of the gate with all the stuff right here. Not wasted no time, but we're glad to any. Because the whole, the whole time we were on break was just sitting there going. We made a mistake, I not. Okay. Not the whole rest of them, but you get what I'm saying. I really love it. Ain't no use. It ain't no use is so goddamn good. But then but but then there's just a lot of like, you know, I'm not gonna say filler because it's not quite down to that level, but especially in comparison to the other albums, we have left filling misses. First, finale just doesn't quite stand up. I, I think agree with you. I'll say about this album that like this is one that before this week I did not really know, and it did the thing where the first traff is to me, the first track is fucking great. Like I thought blue yet smile flees really drew me in like, you know on you, listen to something in the first time you'll listen. It's good. Like that's a big deal. Like nothing Can happened. happen all the time. Correct. Like some of these things are build and they work the entice surprise to grow. That song was one razz wit while this is called an I listen to listen to so many times since then I actually bought a got that on vital coincidentally, I only by used final, so you have to find it. But I found that one. A mile please, I think is amazing. And it made me kind of fall in love with this album, but maybe it's a new love that cloud in my judgment about some of the others that we already range. But I think having ten billion light years away is a great song. And you haven't done nothing as I really liked that. Oh, yes. Okay. You haven't done? Nothing is is a great song. It was number one though, which kind of blows my mind and I think it got there because it's a rewrite of superstition with a good horn hook, it's Jackson Five in the backing vocals, it's really, yeah. Yeah, there's actually quite a few little light guest vocals, a price on her many riverton who. Is easy when you abuse enough mom. I guess that's correct. Yes. Tangalle into Saturday Night. Live, which Stevie once hosted. But apparently did. I don't know how that worked or was when he was the musical guest and the host. Apparently one I may have been earlier season when you know hosting was kind of, you know, not at the role that it is today. Who knows? He is funny though we will say all the other interviews in other materials that'd be. We talk about him. Speaking gibberish to the pasta that was woven into his guitar players hair, but we will get there later. Also too shy. This as honestly kind of a striking the little numb grill. I think it's really basic. I thought it was a nightmare, but the thing is that. Okay, so tearing jump right into it with no context. Let's give a little bit more context before we talk about this thing about this. Is that. We're very much looking at his peak era, and these four albums were released all against each other. This is inequality succession. And while some people say that needs to my mind was the star of his classic era, talking book for a lot of people's like that was his commercial breakthrough. The number one started really hitting is the modern Stevie. He's our testing break. When when when you think about the Stevie Wonder, sounds that's obviously he's put out tons of records, but the sound that people associate with Stevie Wonder is talking book through songs. Absolutely. We have no question and interventions was very much him taking, like it's like wall talking book is very much a personal pop album in the mainstream breakthrough. The needed interventions is very much in album statement in his holy cohesive work in and of itself, and therefore like because it won't again from the year. It was very political. It was very social..

"One of your characters. So we ranked a lot of peak era. Stevie Wonder we're doing nineteen seventy to nineteen eighty seven. And of the twelve albums we had. We rent eight of them, which is pretty incredible, which leaves us Dow down to incredible if you wanted to know our thoughts on the other albums, please go back and listen to the part one of because we will not be talking about them here except ten gently. And yeah, Taryn has a lot of thoughts and feelings. He wants to get out right now for for anything else. Let's talk about the forums that we have left, which are two thousand two's talking book and he's threes Inner Visions, nineteen seventy four stillness. I finale and nineteen seventy six is songs in the key of life. Okay. So do you remember in on our Madonna episode when we were talking about all these albums that had like really tall heights and then like really low lows. You're like, yeah, but there's all batch shit. And so we ended up ranking them and we totally forgot about bedtime stories. One of the most boring albums we've ever had on the show and it somehow ended up seven out of fourteen and feel like fulfilling misses. First finale just pulled that because like there's. Elven ship Grammy's. Limited breath will he won an Oscar. He wanted to Oscar a woman. Also wanna Grammy too, and that is number twelve out of twelve at our list. No. But like the thing is we just put down. I won't say what, but hotter than July science delivered my mind. We just ranked them, but like they all have really good sounds on them. Unfulfilling misses first finale we have billion writing woman, possibly my favorite, Stevie Wonder song. Oh, absolutely. It's funky shape. He's having such a great time..

"Yeah, like either really grungy or like script. -i and like aside murky yet this like the curly q thing and it just makes me cringe. So hard just looking at the fun, but also it's hand and a bunch of rubber masks. I want to say either clay. I don't know. It's really creepy and I, he's blind. So like. Another thing too is that I've, Evan disparaged a couple of the album covers this week to ours, like I mean, but he, he can't really have a hand in them anything. He can give them like a basic concept, even say, like, make it blew, right. Yeah, he doesn't know what blue is right like, well. The thing is like this is called characters. He's written song from the perspective of other people before he's written tales of love and loss of well, went light. You know, women going through incredible things. And this is although we're just like, you call it characters. And then just another album, like especially because I mean, they are easily his worst songs, but he does voices on other record like our our must doing Carrick ends. Yes, he loves to encourage doing and then there's none of that on this record called characters. I'm honestly, I'm like, I'm looking at the track list. I can't even remember what he's on some like I saw a board and then like suddenly this one song came on and I was like, this stood out and it's the one that has be king on it and save risvan and comb. Lovey make your love, come down. It's CBO trick CD's now Renault from his later. It's it's the kind of like schmaltzy blues that I hate. If I am going to get into Blue's blues, it's got to be dirty, really just on refined. And this is like hotel lobby blues, so bad. So for me, personally, for talking about a little bit, I would probably throw because score. In square circle at least has overjoyed and journey to the life secret life plans has some songs on. It are not terrible. I would say number eleven characters. Number twelve in circles, square number ten plants. Great. That's fine with great. Yeah, we already have a number twelve. I mean, how does these go? So love it. Great, perfect discussion had gob aids can stop talking about hyphen. I'm so happy that we were all dislike yet. He's terrible move on. Okay, so that's number twelve. Women, red number loving characters, tenants, square number nine journey to the secret plans and never have to say it and it's great. So now we got down the originals nineteen seventy through nineteen eighty. This is a fun little time, and I'm too scared to make a choice myself so NIA if you. Eight. Okay. But the Bubba. Let me think you're okay. So I really like hotter than I know it's from his later years, kind of, but that like from me, I would not put next. I feel like whatever I choose, it's going to be controversial. I don't. What was the one where I was like this woman. Brig coming from. I think. I mean, I think that's what I want next you. I think it is where I'm coming from because I mean, it has a couple of great songs and it has some good songs, but I didn't feel like as an album it was. I mean, we're getting into territory where it's great album. So I wanna talk to you is also on here which is like making of carrying in the nomination for like or Stevie Wonder songs, at least with what we do this week. And I put us said there were some great song Lam early love me as on here. I guess maybe that's the only great. When I don't never. I love never leave summer. Oh yes. Oh my gosh. That was a revelation this week because I had never heard this before the things the shit..

"Comes up fine line between crafted by artist and just processed by machine, and he is his voice is still in full form. But on these last three albums, I don't think he ever really overcomes it. You know? And it's also program? Yes. Like part of what versus composed part of the reason that he made synthesizers honestly helped bring them to the forefront in to like general audiences was because he was still using live germs. He is still using incredible guitarists. And so these since ounded. Organic? Yeah, they were playing every instrument. Exactly. Whereas like in the eighties, it's like it's definitely a drum machine because it was always a drum machine, like probably even the sense. Sometimes sound like he came up with a riff and then programmed it. So it would just loot for the whole song, you know, like it really loses any sense of of personnel, not personality, but like that. Yeah. When it makes you wonder like when you're someone like Stevie Wonder, and I know that there's trends and that's why you say like then the eighties happened, there are trends and everybody fell into it to an accent at, but like, how do you know? Like not say like, I'm a fantastic drummer, but I'm not gonna play the drums. I'm going to get them. It's the only person who could pull it off this prints and part of the reason that he could program Trump so well, because he was a drummer and he knew how to do that, but Stevie was drummer to he pulled Trumbull so many of his own albums. It's just like, dude, I just have it same. Very, the only last thing I'll say about it because personally, I'm perfectly ok with throwing the woman read at the very bottom of our list, they'll say he won the Oscar for best original song for which blows my mind give it what he goes up against including a footloose by Kenny Loggins. Let's hear it for the boy off of a one soundtrack. Exactly. And also. Yeah. Oh, and also Ghostbusters by Parker? Comma? No. Aimed frigging, was it flashing? No, it wasn't Flashdance. No, there was. It was another conic like title track from a movie, but the things I found so interesting and I couldn't believe ROY, Ray Parker, junior who did the Ghostbusters theme song he played guitar. A one of my favorite songs of his which is maybe your baby way the way back that he does guitar Silla sold. He doesn't. It's just like this kinda cool that they met up and then later began the Oscars, but whatever it's a special award, which is the woman in red going number twelve on our ranking wonder Helms. Okay, that's done this. Great Terron. Yes. Number eleven. I mean. Option. So it's between, yes between like three for me, but I think I have to go with secret life of plants. It's it's just there are some songs on there that I like such as see store yet. No, not even really though really? No. What's it called Essa though? I mean, I do. I don't. That was pretty fun outside my window. I actually really dig that. I like the harmonies on it. I think like childlike melody cat. I think that that's a part where like it's early enough in the Korea that the drum machine kind of is like novel. Yeah. Yeah, because he like works with it and it's still like a, it's not quite a ballot, but it's heading in that direction. But that's like honestly, really an I like power flower, but it's there's, there's just not a time it's. I mean, it's it's a soundtrack for documentary, and so there's a lot of just like the Ambien Incheon bro. Rate. So I was like listening to it while doing mom stuff. And then I was like, this is making me feel insane. This again. It is really dramatic. It's like, what's that? There's like the planet. This is like more. There's a classical of the planets and we played them in band. So as makes me think of like a weird electro version of that. Yes. So you e-e-e-e-no. I would be interested to see maybe how it worked with the documentary, but like as on his own, it's pretty terrible. But I thought it was more terrible than like, I thought it was like the worst, but there were a few moments like this isn't the worst did come for me like I can win with perception of this is just lauded as late one of his were shelves ever. Yeah, and the thing is is bloated. It's not great..

"You think. Defers music living for music, loving people. By to be from worst to first thing that we do, and we are so happy to do, especially right now. This is our forty first artists that we've ever ranked discography wise, which is crazy thing when it comes to expensive and fascinating and challenging discography I can't think of any other artists that we've wanted to dig it to more than this week when we were talking about the one, the only the person who to this day is still probably known as Dionne Warwick's. Best friend that's right guide. We're talking about sting wonder those TV order if you nasty. So Stephen, Stevie number, and we're gonna slow that nasty screaming. So little CV wonder is he used to be known child prodigy, born blind and Michigan, and basically one of the things when you growing up blind, he wound up finding music as an escape, very much so so much so that he was initially brought in front of a very Gordy Motown records in like, oh my God. This can do everything because he's learning how to play keyboards. He's learning how to play drums. He's learning to do all these things of the biggest thing is that he's a young pint-size genius. What do you do with them? Usually they just kind of made them do tribute almost to rate Charles, who was very much big inspiration for him. Again, number one hit with a live recording of him doing fingertips which is him with enthusiasm, Wayland on the harmonica, and let's make this known. I would argue there was never anyone better. Whoever played for Monica than Stevie Wonder, three. I think that just goes without saying, but the thing is that like the weird thing in a lot of people know is that modem didn't know what to do with them for years. They put a serve albums. He a frigging servile thought people know that before Stevie Wonder still kid was beginning to learn his craft learning what it meant to be. Juicer as well as a songwriter and eventually negotiating himself into our tick freedom and holy moly stuff that happened after that is a journey. We're going to talk about the album's today and I'm very excited about it. But who's going to be talking about ranking these wonderful albums hero, which are talkers your favorite podcasts. Let me tell you first of there's, I'm Saudi, you might know me as music interviews editor over at pop matters. He probably know me. Writer for other places, but I hope that you know me as the host of this podcast because love this podcast, so lovely dearly, and if you know anything about the spot cast in, you know the person sitting next to me.

Hi, cerita. How you do a fantastic was such a fun week. It's just it's all so dense, like I could have easily had another like two weeks with this music, and I'm sure I would still be finding surprises and also because we lure just came off Tom petty. That was the last recorded before this one. And that was Tommy just had excess of songs. And here we didn't run into that problem so much so that so many of the songs are single app, six epic, epic link things. But the thing is we've had a wonderful tradition of this podcast of bringing in members of your wonderful musical family in to help out with everything. And we are so excited to continue that tradition today. We the wanting her for some time and. And she is now here. She's a graphic designer. She's a singer songwriter. She wants everyone to know. She's an amazing new moms. Well, that's right. Neo early amend is here in studio NIA. Allow my arms are in the air. Doing good. I'm excited to be here. This is quite an undertaking, especially I'm on maternity leave right now. So I have had like no debt life or projects and this like really tense deadline project, but in a great way to.
