Sound and Vision

From "Boogie On, Reggae Woman":

I'd like to see both of us
Fall deeply in love - yeah
I'd like to see you in the raw
Under the stars above

Yeah, I bet you would, Stevie.

Now, this is certainly a new low for OPC, making jokes at the expense of blind people, but let it be known that Stevie Wonder was not above using his sightlessness to have a spot of fun with the sighted. When he was still a Motown wunderkind, Stevie used to ask the secretaries at the studios to describe the color and pattern of Mr. Gordy's tie, so that when Stevie ran into him he could tell him how much he liked his tie, in great detail.
