audio review : Cold Chill ( song ) … Stevie Wonder

The beat is busy, a little too busy, but it’s a funky groove as Stevie Wonder sings from the perspective of a young casanova who goes to a (dance) club looking for a girl to seduce. He finds her, but she turns the tables on him, thus the title, which stands for romantic heartbreak.

The hook and bridge section could (should) be better; the sparse arrangement of the verses actually sound better than the breaks; but Wonder saves the song with signature flair. The guitar solo also adds a stylish touch and the Cold Chill similes/metaphors at the end are funny.

my rating = 4 of 5
