  • Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine (1971)

    Video

    Never previously a chart hit in the UK - but #40 in this week's chart.

    Can anyone tell me why this is back in the UK Top 40?

    Somebody on Britain's Got Talent performed the track.

      Guess that makes it the best song in this week's top 40...

      Fantastic tune, R&B as should be done.
      Let's have a second referendum

            Great track, had it on my iPod for years now...Shaun's version was quite good on BRT, although it can't top Bill's original.

              And I'm surprised to hear that it was never a chart hit in the UK?

                  Bill Withers' UK Top 75 Singles Chart appearances:

                  1972 - Lean On Me - 18
                  1978 - Lovely Day - 7
                  1985 - Oh Yeah - 60

                  1984 - Sivuca - Ain't No Sunshine - 56

                  2009 - Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine - 40

                    Aussie singer Deni Hines also did a version whilst in the Rockmelons during the 90's.

                          I hate the bit that goes "I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know etc."
