"Golden Lady"
Song by Stevie Wonder from the album Innervisions
ReleasedAugust 3, 1973
GenreSoul
Length6:08 (Full-length version)
LabelTamla
Writer(s)Stevie Wonder

"Golden Lady" is a song by Stevie Wonder for the Tamla (Motown) label, from his Innervisions album. Whilst it was never released as a single, the album itself peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Top 200.[1] The love song, written by Stevie Wonder contrasts with the other songs on the record that comment upon societal issues within America.[2] Examples include his comments on drug addiction within the song Too High and his political commentary on Richard Nixon in You Haven’t Done Nothin.[3]

The song is influenced by the montuno style due to the chord progression and syncopated rhythms found within its chorus. He uses this montuno idea at a later date when he releases the song Don’t You Worry ‘bout a Thing. It also incorporates a picardy third in the ending of the chorus which typically found within Classical music.

The piece also noticeably demonstrates some of his compositional tendencies. Examples of this include his implementation of a line cliche, half step modulations, rhythmic syncopation and sequencing of the melody.
