This 1976 song originally done by Stevie Wonder has been performed by many different artists. This version is one of my favorites.
2. The Deele – “Two Occasions” (1987)
“I only think of you on two occasions, that’s day and night” enough said!!!

We’re only just beginning.
4. Ashanti featuring Ja Rule – “Happy” (2002)
This love song has smooth vocals from Ashanti with a nice verse from Ja Rule which makes this one a good choice. Goes well with summer outdoor weddings too.

Another upbeat one from the old school.

There is a version with rapper Fabolous also if you want a more upbeat version.

Fits perfectly for the occasion.

90’s r&b is arguably the best decade for r&b music.
