The Sun: Sunshine

Jonathan Edwards: Sunshine


This song may have been overplayed at one point on the radio (and recently on various movie soundtracks), but don’t hold that against Jonathan Edwards – or his stellar self-titled debut from back in ’71. It is easy to see why this catchy, feel-good tune received the mainstream attention it did.

Since finding this record in a vinyl bargain bin, I have spun it more than any other in my collection. It’s a perfect mix of harmonica-blasted twangers and sentimental love ballads. If you’re looking for something to use up your eMusic downloads on – try this one.

Bonus: Paul Westerberg (The Replacements) has a version of this tune that showed up on a Friends Soundtrack. Naturally, he slides a little punk in on it….
