Bill Withers explains the origin of “Ain’t No Sunshine”:

Women can say stuff like, “I loved him, I really, really loved him. But he just left. Why’d he leave like that?”

Men, given the same situation, usually say something like, “I’m glad the old jive broad split, man,” knowing all the time that it’s really killing them inside.

The drummer is probably having too much fun. The guy on bass is like, “I’m not getting up.” [via megfowler on twitter]
