8. 'Overjoyed'

Many of the biggest stars of the 1970s struggled to find a place in the radically different pop universe of the 1980s, but Stevie Wonder had no such troubles. He kept scoring hits well in the decade, and his 1985 ballad "Overjoyed" reached Number 24 on the Hot 100. He originally recorded the song for his 1979 LP Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants, but it didn't make the cut. He rerecorded it six years later for In Square Circle. It was one of his last huge hits.
