About the Song
"Lean on Me" is a hit song written and performed by Bill Withers on the 1972 album Still Bill. It is ranked number 205 on the Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Bill Withers' original version of the song has become a popular inspirational anthem and was his first (and only) Billboard Hot 100 number one single to date. Numerous cover versions have been recorded, and it is one of only nine songs to have hit #1 with versions recorded by two different artists. It has been interpreted by various artists ever since, including Club Nouveau (1987). R&B group Club Nouveau covered the song and took it to number five on the Billboard charts in 1987. The 1987 Club Nouveau version won a Grammy award. In 1989, covers of "Lean on Me" by The Winans and Sandra Reaves-Phillips provided the emotional uplift for a motion picture of the same name.
