“Living for the City” – The Dirtbombs

Video

Now here’s a concept I can behind … old-school soul done garage punk style. From the now classic punk soul album “Ultraglide in Black,” Detroit’s Dirtbombs do a killer cover of my all-time favorite Stevie Wonder’ song, “Living for the City.” Very, very cool indeed.

“I Don’t Know Why (I Love You)” – The Rolling Stones

The Stones do a stellar version of this 1968 Stevie Wonder classic.  It was recorded in 1969, but not released as a single until 1975, when it appeared on the odds and ends album “Metamorphosis.”  It’s also included on the Stones box set “The Singles Collection.”  Wonder’s original version appeared on his album “For Once in My Life” and was the B-side of his single “My Cherie Amour.”
