I always thought Superstition was funk, not jazz? :scratch:

Genres generally mean bugger-all, but if we're gonna be fussy about it then Superstition is an R&B song. Stevie Wonder was an R&B artist and Motown were an R&B label.

But like I said, it means nothing anymore. R&B doesn't even stand for "rhythm and blues" anymore; apparently it's something else, not sure what.

You're talking out your arse, Willy. Rhythm and Blues is actually the white boy take on blues. Motown were, unsurprisingly, a motown label! SHOCK! HORROR!

I thought the line "genres generally mean bugger all" covered the whole argument.

"Superstition" is a pop song.
