Cool.
Love the scene in Tyler Perry's Temptation when they played this.... beautiful song. So sad to have lost such a talent before he had time to flourish
Great song
Just the song to hear tonight!! Otis always makes things better. Love it!!
The business!
Otis Redding's version is by far THE BEST of this beautiful soulful song.
The duck man cometh. "Do I offend...?"

Makes me giggle.... Duckie <3 *sigh*
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
Check out dis soulful soul
WE DO GET WEARY!!!!!
Which is to say it's a monster of a classic.
So I finally got this song in 2013 on the Otis station I created in 2007. Not that I listen to it everyday, but I would have expected this to have been one of the first.
