Uptight (Everything's Alright) - Stevie Wonder

Legbamel Not-Pop

It seems a perfect day to revisit the old Motown sound that held so much sway in the 50s, 60s, and into the 70s. I considered a lot of options, mostly more obscure songs like Jamo Thomas's I Spy (for the FBI) and Tina Turner telling Ike that he was Funkier Than a Mosquita's Tweeter, but I decided in the end to go with Stevie Wonder's Uptight.

Actually, I had intended to use the Diana Ross and the Supremes version of the song, but I decided that Stevie's was better on a re-listen. (That and the fact that Grooveshark did not have Ms. Ross's take on it, but Stevie Wonder really owns this tune.) The man may have recorded a lot of cheesy stuff, but you cannot deny his Motown chops after listening to Uptight (Everything's Alright).

After all of this time travel, I'll have to look for something a little more current for tomorrow. Perhaps something from the 80s? Just kidding. I'll find a song from the 90s, at the oldest. I promise.
