Can't Stop Listening To: Lovely Day, Bill Withers
Saturday was the first day of our latest 3 week adventure in Marin, and we went to a fabulous 1-year-old's birthday party complete with tons of kids, a lady magician/face painter, delicious food, free flowing Chandon and lime infused vodka sodas, super fun Bay Area peeps and fellow parents who are very similar to us and our friend ELove spinning tunes. He played a couple of tracks that I knew I loved but never knew who wrote them. The next day as we were lounging at their house, ELove put on the HBO Documentary, "Still Bill" about Bill Withers who wrote and performed said tracks, "Lovely Day," and "Use Me," along with some of my other favorites including "Ain't No Sunshine When You're Gone," "Lean On Me,"Just The Two Of Us," and many more. It's one of the best documentaries I've seen..and it's almost impossible not to like Bill, who is so grounded, deep and extremely talented. Check it out.
