Stevie Wonder Says He's Moving to Ghana

Stevie Wonder is planning out his future. The music legend recently revealed to Oprah Winfrey that he is set on heading out to West Africa to spend his remaining years.
"I wanna see this nation smile again, and I want to see it before I leave to travel to move to Ghana," Wonder, 67, told Winfrey in a recent interview. "Because I'm going to do that."
According to the celebrated musician, he plans to move in an effort to protect his grandchildren from the racial injustice and prejudice that he feels is pervasive in American society.
"I don't want to see my children's children's children have to say, 'Oh, please like me. Please respect me. Please know that I am important. Please value me,'" Wonder shared. "What kind of [life would that be]?"
Wonder -- who has won 25 GRAMMY awards and has been nominated 74 times -- has reportedly been considering a move to Ghana for more than 25 years.

Back in 1994, Wonder said at a gathering for the International Association of African American Music that he wanted to relocate to the West African country because he felt there's "more of a sense of community there," according to CNN.

Songs with dances in the title

Mickey's Monkey
Twistin' Postman
Come On Do the Jerk
Can You Jerk Like Me?

All of the above songs were original compositions released on various Motown labels, and all contain the names of dances.

I know there are more. Can you name more songs released by Motown that contain the names of dances that are NOT covers?

I'm just listening to this outstanding album and the following thought occurred to me.....

Is there any track on the album that isn't up to the standard of being a single release?

HDH really produced the goods on this album!

Motown Legends - Polygram Special Projects CD releases.

Back in the mid-1990's Polgram Special Projects released a series of compilation CDs. I have two of them of to refer to for this inquiry. The Marvelettes [Beechwood 4-5780] and [Playboy]. The other group CD is Diana Ross & The Supremes [My World Is Empty Without You] and [I Hear a Symphony]. The Marvelettes has three *bonus tracks --- You're The One, Everybody Knows But You, and When I Need You. The Supremes also has three *bonus tracks --- I'll Set You Free, The Land of Make Believe, and Mr. Blues. Cary Mansfield was the compiler for both of these.

These rarely get any discussion. Does anyone know of a complete official listing of all that were released? Often I look at discographies of releases, i. e. Randy's Rodeo.com and they are not included in those categories he featured that include a picture of what the releases look like.

I think they are a great item to possess. What does anyone else know about this series and/or what do they think about them?
