If You Love It, Don’t Say You Like It
Can’t stop listening to this song.
Trick or Treat by Otis Redding
It was created by the incredible Stax writing team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter, who also wrote Sam & Dave’s Soul Man amongst many others and showcases Otis’ perfectly imperfect ad-libbed grunts and stammers, and his lonesome-longing howlin’ growls.
Backed (if ‘backed’ could ever be a sufficient enough epithet) by one of the most astoundingly tight, driving, soaring, sexy-sounding bands ever to wage war on boredom. A band that breathed pure soul into every one of the grace-fueled notes and beaten snares that now plunge into your welcoming senses:
I dare you to only listen to it once.
