"Sunny" by Bobby Hebb.

I feel like I'm late to this song, but it grabbed me and didn't let me go back in October 2020. The restraint in Hebb's voice is what's most arresting, even toward the end when he starts to belt. Knowing that it's dedicated to his brother, who had just been stabbed to death, is no surprise if you zoom in on just how bittersweet Hebb's voice is.
