Song of the Day: Knock on Wood as performed by Otis Redding featuring Carla Thomas


Musical Pipe Dream: I’m jamming on the drums. My foot is steady and hard on the pedal and I’m making sure I’m playing loud and the sound is tight, not sloppy. I’m having so much fun.

Song of the Day: Try a Little Tenderness as sung by Otis Redding


Musical Pipe Dream: This video of Otis Redding’s performance in Sweden is magical. His slight movement and groove when the horns come in, the tempo, the audience feeling the music, the bridge, the breakdown, the band, everybody feeling the magic, the two encores, the kids getting their bags ready to leave, the third encore, the audience going nuts, the horn section having to step up to another part of the stage to back up from the audience, the announcer just doing his thing, THE BAND, Otis Redding … my musical pipe dream was that I was actually there. This is the kind of stuff I thank the YouTube gods for.
