Composition and recording

"Hey Love" is the closing track on Stevie Wonder's 1966 album Down to Earth. Co-written with Morris Broadnax and Clarence Paul, it is the best-known of the four songs on the album for which Wonder received a writing credit.[2]

Ed Hogan of AllMusic said the song's "dominant, looping rhythm echoes the tick-tock of a clock, which gives the down-tempo track a melancholy late-night vibe, emphasizing the feeling that the singer is giving his all in a one last chance to get the direct attention of the object of his affectations."[1]

In The Sound of Stevie Wonder: His Words and Music, James E. Perone writes, "What is notable is Wonder's developing melodic sense over what is a fairly simple harmonic scheme that involves just the tonic, subdominant, and dominant chords... 'Hey Love' presents a hint of what was to come in his compositions and performances in the 1970s."[2]

"Hey Love" has been included on several Stevie Wonder greatest hits compilations, including Greatest Hits (1968), Looking Back (1977), Love Songs: 20 Classic Hits (1985), At the Close of a Century (1999), and The Definitive Collection (2002).
