Uptight (Everything's Alright) by Stevie Wonder

Rocktober is here and this is Detroit Rock City week at The Lost Soul of Rock and Roll. I'm selecting some of the best music from the Motor City, and the song of the day for October 2, 2012 is 'Uptight (Everything's Alright)' by Stevie Wonder, a hit song from 1966.

Stevie Wonder was 15 when he recorded this song, so all of you teeny-bopper artists need to pay attention to the brilliance of Mr. Wonder. 'Uptight (Everything's Alright)' was another piece of musical gold from Motown, a label that I view was the greatest in the history of rock and roll. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a Motown household and if you don't like Motown, then you need to get out of my rock room. Take a listen to Stevie Wonder and enjoy your Rocktober.

  1. Oasis did a brilliant rip-off of this called "Step Out" which was set for the 'Morning Glory' album... until they realized how much of the publishing they'd have to give up on the whole album. They did put it out as a b-side to "Don't Look Back in Anger."
