Song of the day: “Lately” – Stefano Langone
Maybe I loved this performance because I have an old school obsession with Stevie Wonder. Maybe I clung to it because he delivered a solid performance on American Idol. Or maybe…the sped up version is catchy. Do I prefer the original version? Of course I do, but Langone found a way to make the song new again and did it in a way that makes it exciting for a younger audience but gives classic Stevie fans the chance to reminisce. My only complaint is that Langone’s vowels are odd, giving some of the notes a strained sound, but when he’s on…he’s on.
