1. Skeletons

Answer: Characters

The 1987 release "Characters" was Stevie Wonder's worst-performing album for fifteen years, stalling at number 17 in the USA and 33 in the UK. Despite this, it was nominated for a Grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. "Skeletons" was released as a single, reaching number 19 on the US Billboard chart.

The 12" version features soundbites by the likes of Ronald Reagan and Oliver North.

Answer: Conversation Peace

"Conversation Peace" was released in 1995 and charted at number eight in the UK and 16 in the USA. "For Your Love" was a number 23 hit single in the UK and won two Grammys, for Best R&B Male Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.

Answer: Talking Book

The 1972 album "Talking Book" was number three hit in the USA and reached number 16 in the UK. The album spawned two US Billboard number one singles - "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" and "Superstition". The latter saw Wonder employ a clavinet synthesiser.
4. Part-Time Lover

Answer: In Square Circle

Released in 1985, "In Square Circle" made the top five in both the UK and USA. The album won a Grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.

"Where I'm Coming From" was released in 1971, with all the tracks being written by Wonder and his then-wife Syreeta Wright.

6. Happy Birthday

Answer: Hotter than July

"Hotter than July" was released in 1980, reaching number two in the UK and three in the USA. "Happy Birthday" was a tribute to Martin Luther King, and was part of a campaign to make the anniversary of his birth a national holiday - this eventually happened, with the first such commemoration taking place in January, 1986.

The song was released as a single, reaching number two in the UK, but failing to crack the US Billboard top 100.

Answer: My Cherie Amour

"My Cherie Amour" was released in 1969, reaching number 17 in the UK and 34 in the USA. "Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday" was recorded two years earlier, and was a cover of a Chris Clark song. Released as a single, it went all the way to number two in Britain and made number seven on the US Billboard chart.
8. Boogie on Reggae Woman

Answer: Fulfillingness' First Finale

The 1974 release "Fulfillingness' First Finale" gave Stevie Wonder his first US number one since "Recorded Live: The 12 Year Old Genius" in 1963.
