Not trying to be a dick, but I really don't understand how. I love Stevie Wonder but what he's doing with that weird instrument is kind of a trainwreck. And since it's the only instrument providing any kind of harmonic backing, the whole thing sounds like it's forever on the verge of falling apart

Different strokes... but you don’t like the song in the first place and are already predisposed to not like the cover of it. That’s cool. I’m sure there’s plenty of stuff you like that I don’t.

Speaking of the song in general, I always just thought it was ok. Didn’t love it, certainly didn’t hate it. After being a father for a number of years, it actually resonates with me more now than it ever did when it was first released. To know of the absolute horror he went thru and how it was a healing mechanism for him. I don’t know if I could be so productive if something like that ever happened to me.

Putting aside my opinion of the song, Stevie is fucking up left and right. It's just comically sloppy. I guess he didn't have a lot of time to rehearse

Almost like he couldn’t even see the keys he was hitting

Cover songs that make me say "holy shit" can both be good and bad.

Some of the good ones I really like:

Baby, Please Don't Go - AC/DC
Pipeline - Anthrax
Brand New Cadillac - The Clash
I Heard It Through The Grapevine - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Gloria - The Doors
Stuck In The Metal - Eagles of Death Metal (They changed the name to "metal" from "middle", but it's still a cover)
Breadfan - Metallica
The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana
Sonic Reducer (studio) - Pearl Jam
Dock of the Bay - Pearl Jam
I Got You - Pearl Jam
Let My Love Open the Door - Pearl Jam
Can't Help Falling In Love - Pearl Jam
Renegades of Funk - RATM
Higher Ground - RHCP
Dancing in the Streets - Van Halen
Young Man Blues - The Who

That solo, and everything that follows the beginning of it’s infancy, is insanely amazing. It’s perfection... perfection plus... well, it is perfect. Absolutely perfect. :heartbeat: :heartbeat:

Tallest Man on Earth's cover of "The Bluest Eyes in Texas" has been stuck in my head all week. (Starts at 3:30 if the tag doesn't work.) (Seven edits later, the tag did not work.)
