Cover vs. Original

Higher Ground


I like the Chili Peppers' cover-- it's good seeing a funky band of white guys take on Stevie Wonder-- but no one outdoes Stevie Wonder.

Stevie Wonder is undoubtedly the greatest artist (singer/songwriter/musician) of our time. His creativity and originality is unequaled by of any other artist.

I think the synth on Stevie's version works better than RHCP's guitars. It makes it way more funky.

If I coul vote for both, i do it, both are great

I never thought I'd prefer anyone singing Stevie's songs other than him but RHCP have absolutely nailed this. Just about my favourite cover

Stevie without question, one of the best songs from a Perfect Album "Innervisions". Stevie is one of the greatest artist in any field of the 20th century.

A good cover song has to reinvent a song not just make it funkier. The original is one of the best songs ever made, RHCP dont reinvent, and could never out-funk Stevie anyway.

for me Stevie totally clicks on this song. Great song writing, great vocals - the man is playing just about everything you hear on this track - his keyboard work rides the deepest groove ever put on vinyl.
