Hey! This week we’re looking at Stevie Wonder’s Living For The City. I am an absolute fan of Stevie’s and after watching Beyoncé do a cover of this song I felt it appropriate to feature him. The song was released in 1973 and reached #8 on the Billboard Pop charts and #1 on the R&B chart. What I particularly like about the song is the social issues that Stevie comments on. He starts the song of addressing poverty in the rural areas of America (Mississippi), which is a matter very close to him. He goes on to address racism as well as drugs.
Without further ado, here is “Living For The City”. Enjoy!
