Lived on Lemon Bay on the coast of West Florida growing up. This song requires a glorious sunset, fishing pole and a 6 pk. So good.....

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't stop this is freaky! But if you read this and ignore it you will get bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When you are done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen. This is so creepy because it actually works

otis redding wrote and performed this song for the first time in early december 1968. a few weeks later he was killed in a plane crash. his friend james brown warned him not fly that night because of the weather. as a famous comedian from my generation used to: you could look it up.
