I have been listening to lots of new music recently, evidenced by last week’s jam and the week prior. But, I know some of our readers prefer a smoother softer sound. When you want smooth, it is hard to do better than Bill Withers.
While relatively well known, Withers does not seem to get the props he deserves. He has a slew of amazing songs; “Grandma’s Hands”, “Ain’t No Sunshine”, “Use Me”, “Lean On Me”, and “Just the Two of Us” are his best known hits.
As Jessica pointed out so eloquently on twitter, school started up again this week, which meant more hours spent working. Working requires low key music, and “Lovely Day” was the perfect remedy for the back to work blues.
