Little Stevie Wonder boosted Motown’s status when he earned the label its first US number-one single at the age of 13.

How well do you remember the songs that followed for the hit factory?

Very superstitious, Writing's on the wall, Very superstitious...
PA
Wash your face and hands
Black cat starts to crawl

Thirteen-month-old baby
Ladder's about to fall
Why do you keep a comin' around, Playin' with my heart? Why don't you get out of my life, And let me...
PA
Make a new start
Keep hangin' on

Just depart
Release these farts
People say 'believe half of what you see, Son and none of what you hear', But I can't help being confused, If it's true please tell me...
PA
Because you mean that much to me
That you love someone else

Dear
And I'll disappear
Papa was a rolling stone, Wherever he laid his hat was his home, And when he died, all he left us was...
PA
His drone
His hat

Alone
A loan
When I had you to myself, I didn't want you around, Those pretty faces always made you...
PA
Give me one more chance
Stand out in a crowd

Let me back in your heart
Look ugly, baby
People say I'm the life of the party, Because I tell a joke or two, Although I might be laughing loud and hearty...
I still need you
Inside my hope is fading

Deep inside I'm blue
Deep inside you knew
You're once, Twice, Three times a lady...
Youtube
And four times my baby
And I love you

And you made my life worth living for
And we ain't related
Calling out around the world, Are you ready for a brand new beat, Summer's here and the time is right...
PA
For folks to meet
For dancin' indiscreet

For dancing in the street
For airing out those feet
Sugar pie, honey bunch (Sugar pie, honey bunch), I'm weaker than a man should be, I can't help myself...
PA
I'm a fool in love you see
No matter how I try, my love, I cannot hide

I love you and maybe she
I love you and nobody else
I'll keep working my way back to you, babe, With a burning love inside, Yeah, I'm working my way back to you, babe...
Youtube
Please don't tell the boys I cried
And I'll make you my bride

And the happiness that died
Been payin' every day
