We used to listen to cassette tapes in the car when I was a kid. My dad, like lots of dads, probably, used to record songs from the radio and edit them down and make these tapes. We listened to a lot of Stevie Wonder. To the point where he’s just Stevie.
There’s lots of great Stevie Wonder songs.
If You Really Love Me is the song in my head at the minute. I was building Spotify playlists for my mom to listen to as part of a mother’s day gift and I thought some Stevie would work. I then got sucked into the This Is Stevie Wonder playlist and this was the song that jumped out at me. The verses are theatrical, the choruses are fun and it’s the perfect length at 3 minutes on the dot to make me want to play it over and over. Enough to get me hooked, not enough for me to feel like I’ve heard enough.
