Stevie Wonder - "I'll Be Seeing You"

Here's a forgotten gem from one of Johnny Carson's last Tonight shows.

The guest is Stevie Wonder, and he sings one of Johnny's personal favorite songs - "I'll Be Seeing You", especially touching since Johnny was soon calling it quits on a 30-year run as host. Some people swear you can see a tear in Johnny's eye at the end of the song.

More people remember Bette Midler's song on Johnny's last "real" show (his last show had no guests), but I always liked the feel of this one slightly better.

And so what if he didn't remember all the words!
