I have always been a big fan of the Bill Withers. After he passed away last week, I had to go back and listen to some of his great, classic, songs like "Lean On Me", "Ain't No Sunshine" and my all time favorite "Lovely Day".

When I found out that Rick Astely did a cover song of the Bill Withers' classic "Ain't No Sunshine". I was pretty skeptical. This is a song that has passion, pain and sadness. There's so much soul in it. I didn't think for a minute that Rick Astley could pull it off -- I was wrong.

He did pull it off and he did it very well. I admit it, shocked me. I'm not saying that Rick Astley can't sing but I also didn't think that the guy that did "Never Gonna Give You Up", could have pulled this off. I was thoroughly impressed.
