A Powerful Motown Cover of ‘(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love and Understanding’

Postmodern Jukebox teamed up with talented vocalist Sarah Potenza to perform a powerful Motown cover of “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding”, the prescient Nick Lowe song that was famously covered by Elvis Costello. While the song was written in 1974, it has a sincere message that seems more pertinent now than ever. This was the last Postmodern Jukebox performance of 2023.

For our last video of 2023 — and of Season 3 — modern day-blues belter and PMJ Tour star, Sarah Potenza returns to help us give the PMJ treatment to the 1974 classic, “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding,” written by Nick Lowe
