Stevie Wonder ‘As’ – Stevie Wonder’s 1976 hit ‘As’ has been covered countless times, but we think the original says it best this valentine’s day.

 

The Contours ‘Do You Love Me’ – The Contours’ only Top 40 single on Billboard Hot 100 in the US was originally intended for the Temptations but given to the Contours by Berry Gordy. It made a return to the Charts in 1988 after the success off the film Dirty Dancing.
