I Don’t Know (Why I Love You) – Performed by Stevie Wonder (1969) and The Brand New Heavies (2006)
July 31, 2008
This original song performance by Stevie Wonder in 1969 is of a gem that he co-wrote with his mother Lula Mae Hardaway, Don Hunter and Paul Riser. I really don’t have much to say because the music says it all. My only comment is why it took so long for one of today’s musical acts to realize what a great song this is and finally decide to cover it.
Here is the promotional performance video for the awesome 2006 cover by the Brand New Heavies from their “Get Used To It” CD featuring lead vocalist N’Dea Davenport. If I had to wait almost four decades for a cover — this one was well worth the wait. I am positive that Stevie gave this one two thumbs up!
Keep the oldies alive!
