A classic 70s soulful groove from Bill Withers released in 1977, personally one of my favorite songs! No matter where I am, this song immediately lifts me up, not to mention who doesn’t want to have a lovely day???
The lyrics alone are a feeling you want to manifest for yourself and others around you. From the beginning, the melody is surrounded by a smooth bass line immediately pulling you in. Next a soft violin mesmerizes your ears, just in time for those feet to start tapping. I’ve literally witnessed this song bring strangers together whether bobbing their heads, humming or whistling the tune together in unison.
Honestly, I actually have this song set as an alarm ringtone! That’s the kind of energy this song gives you, for which you would want this tune waking you up in the morning! Probably one of the most magical songs created. But hey, that’s just my opinion, if you don’t believe me, just take a listen!
