Listen to WE CAN WORK IT OUT by Stevie Wonder.
So, one last week of Beatles covers this month, and I thought it would be nice to end on some sure-fire winners.
Most of you have probably heard Stevie's cover of We Can Work It Out. I know I've heard it a million times, but it never ceases to blow me away. How he was able to take one of the best Beatles singles, then markedly change the mood, the feel, the arrangement, and make it even listenable...well, how did he do it? This cover--as much as anything he ever did--signifies for me how much talent that kid had.
