The 30 Best Movie Songs of the Last 40 Years

29 Jun

26. I Just Called to Say I Love You, by Stevie Wonder, from The Woman in Red (1984)

Ah, Stevie Wonder. The dude has a whopping 22 Grammys (the most of any male solo artist) as well as 30 top ten hits in the US. Undoubtedly one of his most loved songs is I Just Called to Say I Love You. It was written for the Gene Wilder comedy, The Woman in Red, and was a massive success. It was probably also responsible for many a man with romantic interests making clichéd phone calls in the mid-‘80s.

Stats: Number 1 on the US, UK and Australian charts; Academy Award win; Golden Globe win.

Penalty Points: Not many people remember I Just Called to Say I Love You is from The Woman in Red.

Bonus Points: How many Grammys have you won whilst being blind? I thought so.
