Music Mondays with Bill Withers

Toronto was hit with its first big snowstorm this weekend.

I hate winter so I thought of summer, which led to thoughts of sunshine.

“Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers is a favorite of mine, even though I break out in a sweat every time I sing it.  Try singing along with him and you’ll see what I mean (at the 54 second mark).

If you feel like sweating by reading instead of singing, pick up a copy of any of my books.

  1. Big fan of Bill Withers, here. My mom used to listen to his Still Bill album every day. His “lean On Me” still brings a tear to my eye, and the same for “Grandma’s Hands.” And “Till You Use Me Up.” it doesn’t get much better…

  2. Love Bill Withers’ voice and particularly this song. It has what I call a possimistic tone; a touch of melancholy but full of possibilities and promise …

  6. Yep. Fifty four seconds in, and trying to sing along, you’re lost.

    I’ve heard him before, but it’s been awhile. Good choice, Eden!
