Everyone has to have a favorite Stevie Wonder song, right? What’s yours? Mine is “Lately.” It’s a simple and sad song that I never tire of listening to. I wanted to keep it simple, so I used only piano and voice. I played to a metronome click, but I didn’t do any corrections. Kinda live, if you will.

The trouble with covering a Stevie Wonder song is that one of the best performers that ever lived did it before you. I’m saying not to expect much. Also, sorry that the piano is sloppy — it was one take.
