Lean On Me - Bill Whithers (1972)

Good choices all, but Bill Withers' "Lean On Me" is the one that does it for me. Such a great song.
Thanks! And Happy OSF!

I love ALL of your choices, but I must admit - I broke out in a smile, with my hand up and eyes closed to "Rock The Boat." As a kid, it was one of my favorite songs!!

You got in three smiling classics. None of these crossed my mind, and yet each one of your selections is right on.
