“Lovely Day” is a song by American soul and R&B singer Bill Withers. Published in 1977, the song was written by Withers and Skip Scarborough and appears on Withers’ 1978 album Menagerie.

Toward the end of the song, Withers holds a note for 18 seconds. This is believed to be the second-longest note in UK chart history; Morten Harket of A-ha’s 20-second note in “Summer Moved On” is the longest. Withers’ note is sustained in chest voice, whereas Harket utilizes the falsetto range. The former remains the longest of any Top 40 hit in the United States.
