Stevie Wonder
A lo largo de tantas décadas creando música, son muchas las canciones que se han quedado en el tintero sin ser publicadas por Stevie Wonder. Unas han podido ser descubiertas a través de alguna intervención en televisión o concierto, otras en cambio han acabado en manos de otros artistas, siendo posteriormente rescatadas por Stevie para alguna intervención puntual. Aquí podemos ver y escuchar algunas de ellas...

I Can See The Sun In Late December

I Can See The Sun In Late December, Musikladen-Beat Club
Éste es el caso de "I Can See The Sun In Late December", canción que Stevie Wonder depositó en la gran voz de Roberta Flack para su álbum de 1975 Feel Like Makin' Love. Una canción hermosa que posee el encanto de Stevie de esos años 70, y que la podemos ver y escuchar interpretada por Stevie en el año 1975 dentro del programa alemán llamado Musikladen -sustituto de otro de éxito anterior llamado Beat-Club- en el que grandes artistas interpretaban sus éxitos en vivo y en formato concierto.


I Can See The Sun In Late December
I bet ya you can't even see the sun
Ah, the sun is shining
Right before your eyes
I bet ya you can't even see yourself
'Cause when you're lost
Sometimes yourself is hard to find

I can see the sun in late December
I see forgotten treasures 'neath the sea
Tides that defeat identity
Washing away the beauty that was in your mind

I can hear the sounds you don't remember
The sounds of birds in trees in harmony
Chords being blown by a gentle breeze
Making the perfect melody you left behind

I bet ya you can't even see the moon
'Cause in your eyes you only see the darkest side
I bet ya you can't wish upon a star
'Cause in your life
Your pride has pushed your dreams aside, hey

(Repeat)

(Repeat)

(Repeat)

I bet ya I can see the sun
See forgotton treasures 'neath the sea
Tides that defeat identity (I can see the sun)
Washing away the beauty in your mind

I bet ya I can hear the sounds
Sounds of birds in trees in harmony
Chords being blown by a gentle breeze
(Sounds you don't remember)

I can hear the sounds, sounds
Sounds you don't remember
I can see the sun, sun
Sun in late December

(Repeat)

I can see the sun (Repeat)




I Can Only Be Me

I Can Only Be Me, School Daze

Otro de esos temas que forman parte del baul de inéditos en álbumes de Stevie Wonder es "I Can Only Be Me". Un tema que depositó confiando plenamente en en las manos y voz de Keith John, apoyo vocal importante para Stevie desde hace muchos años. Formaba parte de la banda sonora de la película School Daze del año 1988, siendo posteriormente interpretada por Eva Cassidy en su disco Imagine del 2002, o Sarah Mitchell en el año 2009 en You Give Me Something, entre otros muchos que vieron la belleza de una composición con alma.

Aqui vemos a su creador interpretándola con la magia y sencillez como sólo él es capaz de concebir.

I can only be me
Butterflies begin
From having been another
As a child is born
From being in a mother's womb
But how many times have you
wished you were some other
someone than who you are

Yet who's to say
If all were uncovered
You will like what you see
You can only be you
As I can only be me

Flowers cannot bloom
Until it is their season
As we would not be here
unless it was our destiny
But how many times have you
wished to be in spaces
Time places than what you were
Yet who's to say with unfamiliar
faces You could anymore be
Loving you that you see
You can only be you
As I can only be
Me

I can only be me




Good Light

Siguiendo con esas canciones compuestas por Stevie Wonder y que forman parte del baul de temas sin ser publicados nos encontramos con Good Light. Posiblemente compuesta en los años 80, entre In Square Circle y Jungle Fever, y que se pudo escuchar en un concierto en el Wembley Arena de Londres en 1989, celebrando su cumpleaños.





I'm A Man

La suerte en ocasiones es cuestión de saber buscarla, y en ocasiones te puedes encuentrar con ella de sopetón. De esa manera se la encontraron los afortunados que asistieron al concierto de 1989 en el Wembley Arena de Londres donde, aparte de celebrar el cumpleaños de Stevie Wonder, pudieron deleitarse con varias canciones inéditas. Entre ellas éste otro tema, I'm A Man.

I`m A Man
Since the day
From
He always felt he had no right
To say he wasn't there for with the great event
Or living cause he was a man
Building worlds in time that he
Feeling he could not believe...
To believe he'd not been part of the master plan
Because he calls himself a man
I'm a man
Yes I am
And I will kick anybody in their pants
Who tells me that I am not a man
I'm a man
Yes I am
And I will pass a law that says to kill who think they can
Be more than I am not a man
Do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do
It's not to say that we don't have the right
To pride ourselves in what we've done in life
But what we haven't is what we must have to achieve
Respect by all his woman a man
Until the day that hated wars subside
The man you think you are is but a lie
Cause
The king of peace is the greatest man
I'm a man
Yes I am
And I will kick anybody in their pants
Who tells me that I am not a man
I'm a man, yea
Yes I am
And I will pass a law that says to kill who think they can
Be more than I am not a man
I'm a man, yea
Yes I am
And I will kick anybody in their ass
Who tells me that I am not a man
I'm a man, yea
Yes I am
And I will pass a law that says to kill who think they can
Be more than I am not a man




It`s Growing

Con un sonido característico de Stevie de los años 80, contemplamos otra rareza sin publicación de Stevie Wonder. Se trata del tema It's Growing, probablemente utilizada como entrada de sus conciertos que transcurrieron a comienzos de los años 80. En este caso es de los conciertos que realizó Stevie en el año 1985 por Japón.

It`s Growing
I got a thing for you baby and it won't let go
I got a thing for you baby and it grows grows grows grows grows
I got something for the body and its burning hot
I got something for the spirit that hate can't stop stop stop
It's growing, it's growing
It's getting longer and stronger
And wider and kinder, it's growing
Seed of your heart
It's growing, it's growing
It's getting wider and deeper
And neater and sweeter, it's growing
Seed of your heart
We say "Oh yes"
They say "Oh no"
We say "Love's young"
They say "Love's old"
We say that "Love has proven
It can stand the test of time."
They laugh in our faces and say
"It's just a fixation in our minds."
We say "It's time for us to live as one."
They say we're fools that hearts never
Ever will be done."
They say the things we're saying
They've already heard
But we say love's truth is of course the last word
So I got a thing for you baby and it won't let go
I got a thing for you baby and it grows grows grows grows grows
I got something for the body and its burning hot
I got something for the spirit that hate can't stop stop stop
I got a thing for you baby and it won't let go
I got a thing for you baby and it grows grows grows grows grows
I got something for the body and its burning hot
I got something for the spirit that hate can't stop stop stop
You know what
It's growing, it's growing
It's getting longer and stronger
And kinder and finer, it's growing
Seed of your heart
Oh it's growing, Seed of your heart it's growing
It's getting wider and deeper
And neater and sweeter, it's growing
Seed of your heart
Oh it's growing, the seed of love inside you
It's growing
It's getting longer and stronger
And kinder and finer, it's growing
Seed of your heart
Oh it's growing, the seed of love inside you
It's growing yeah
It's getting wider and deeper
And neater and sweeter, it's growing
Seed of your heart




Fear Can't Put Dreams to sleep

"Fear Can't Put Dreams To Sleep" -que el miedo no te adormezca- es como no podía ser de otra forma, otra canción compuesta por Stevie mostrando sus preocupaciones y deseos para que nosotros mismos mantengamos viva la llama por un mundo libre y sin odio. Publicada alrededor de 1991, han sido varias las veces en las que la ha interpretado. Con Take 6 en la Convención Demócrata con Obama en el 2008, y a comienzos de los años 90 en este video.

Fear Can't Put Dreams to sleep
From out of the blue there came to me a question
the kind that until you answer won’t let you be
The question was if I was blessed
w/the gift of sight
what most in life would I want to see
That made me think of an old story
about a boy who had no feet …
no feet or hands who was asked if he could walk what would he do
And he said, as I understand,
Chorus: If my eyes were to see
let them be the witness of a world that is color free
And if my limbs were to move
let me touch and walk in land where hate could no longer be
And if my ears were to hear
let it be like sweetest music be in sync with harmony
And if my mouth were to speak,
let me talk about a land were love’s for all
and fear can’t put dreams to sleep
And in a crowd there came two sisters
one talking to the other one in sign
and she asked of the sister of all things if you could hear
what would you like to hear most at this time
She, without any hesitation,
gave the tale of girl that
could talk what would you say
and she wasn’t seeing at all
Repeat Chorus: If my eyes were to see
let them be the witness of a world that is color free
And if my limbs were to move
let me touch and walk in land where hate could no longer be
And if my ears were to hear let it like the sweetest music be in unity and harmony And if my mouth were to speak, let me talk about a land were love’s for all and fear can’t put dreams to sleep Repeat Chorus: If my eyes were to see let them be the witness of a world that is color free And if my limbs were to move let me touch and walk in land where hate could no longer be And if my ears were to hear let it like the sweetest music be in unity and harmony And if my mouth were to speak, let me talk about a land were love’s for all and fear can’t put dreams to sleep Repeat Chorus: If my eyes were to see let them be the witness of a world that is color free And if my limbs were to move let me touch and walk in land where hate could no longer be And if my ears were to hear let it like the sweetest music be in unity and harmony And if my mouth were to speak, let me talk about a land were love’s for all and fear can’t put dreams to sleep




Truth Is The Light

Otra de esas maravillas de Stevie Wonder sin publicar es la canción "Truth Is The Light". Interpretada por Stevie en conciertos en vivo como éste, celebrado en Japón -año 1990- o utilizado tambien en ocasiones muy puntuales y especiales como el homenaje celebrado en Los Ángeles Shrine Auditorium por el 60 aniversario en el mundo del show de Sammy Davis Jr.




Fine Young Thing, Lost Treasures

Transcurrían los primeros años de la década más creativa de Stevie Wonder -los años 70- cuando se grabó éste video dentro del estudio junto a su banda Wonderlove.
