Stevie Wonder’s cover of “We Can Work It Out’ has to rank high on the list of best covers of Beatles written songs. In 1971 Wonder would have 2 Top 40 hits but it was the calm before the storm- late in 1972 he would release ‘Superstition’ and the album Talking Book and would explode into one of the greatest if not the greatest artist of the 1970’s.

  1. Agree this is a great Beatles cover. I’m glad I included it in a December 2019 post about renditions of Beatles songs I also agree with you this appeared just before Stevie Wonder’s most fascinating period.
