Did You Know: “Lean On Me” By Bill Withers

It’s “Lean On Me” on ‘Tickets @ 2’ by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bill Withers[/lastfm]. When coming up with the song, Bill said: “This was from my second album, so I could afford to buy myself a little Wurlitzer electric piano. There I was sitting there just running my fingers up and down the keyboard when the phrase ‘Lean On Me’ crossed my mind.”

Withers did not record his first song until he was 32 years old. He spent nine years in the Navy, then worked a an airplane factory installing toilets in airplanes. A #1 hit could be a life changing experience.

We’ll take lucky caller 13 when it plays between two and three to win a pair of tickets to the Queen Mary’s ‘Dark Harbor’ Halloween event for a fright filled night of mazes, music, food, drinks, and ‘live’ music at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).

    Fiona honey, “Lean on me” when you’re lonely.All those links and poems I’ve been sending you over the net (whereever you are?) are my ways of telling you that I’m thinking about you and DREAMING about you each and every day and night in the hopes that HELP WILL COME (Still BELIEVING that) and that you and I will meet in Memphis where I will take you in my arms at Graceland and “tiptoe through those tulips (two lips) of yours” and make both of our lives defined, putting my life behind me and the sadness that came with it.

    I want and need you to be by my side for the rest of my life (everyone needs someone to lean on and baby, you’re it, trust me. From the first time I saw you in running shoes and a skirt, I knew that we would be together although I was thhinking–“that’s odd!”, but I was also thinking “how cute you looked like that!” After fifteen months I’m now thinking how hot you must look right now (especially on the inside sweetheart because I miss doing things with you). Hold on honey because I BELIEVE that help is coming.
