Throwback Thursday Video: ‘Living For The City’ By Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder’s “Inversions” album covered just about social topic that you could think of.

Take “Living For The City” as an example.

It’s all about a young man from Mississippi¬†who moves to New York City, gets caught up in drugs and ends up in jail.

Pretty deep stuff!

People really loved the song when it came out, because it went to #8 on the Billboard charts and won a Grammy Award for Best Rhythm & Blues Song too.

In fact, the entire album won the Grammy Award for the Album of the Year!

The cool thing about this song is that everything you hear is Stevie!

The vocals, all the instruments, everything on the song was played by him!
