The Woman in Red: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the second soundtrack album released by American musician Stevie Wonder on the Motown label. Also featuring Dionne Warwick, the album was released in 1984 for the film of the same name. It features Wonder's biggest hit, "I Just Called to Say I Love You", which hit #1 internationally and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, and also features the follow-up hit, "Love Light in Flight" (a US top 20 hit) and "Don't Drive Drunk", the song and the accompanying music video for which were used in the Ad Council and the US Department of Transportation's Drunk Driving Prevention public service announcement the following year.

Commercial performance

The album reached number four on the US Billboard 200 chart, #1 on the R&B Albums chart (for four weeks) and #2 on the UK Albums Chart, where it was kept off the top spot by the albums Now That's What I Call Music 3 and David Bowie's Tonight. As with Wonder's albums Songs in the Key of Life and Hotter than July, The Woman in Red soundtrack reached #2 in the UK Albums Chart and to date he has failed to achieve a number one album in the UK. However, the single "I Just Called to Say I Love You", taken from The Woman in Red, was a massive hit in the UK, reaching #1 and becoming the second best-selling single of 1984 (only behind Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?") and the third most successful single of the entire 1980s there.
