Log in to Reply Taf Taf 2/11/2018 - 2:05 pm Right now,no.It’s metaphorical.Although there were times I sat on docks,staring at the sea and wanting to die. Log in to Reply a1957 2/11/2018 - 4:59 pm Wow. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to this song. I have been just caught up in the sound of it all since it’s release in 1968, until today. I read the lyrics today. This song belongs on SP. Log in to Reply Taf Taf 2/11/2018 - 5:44 pm All this hopelessness,loneliness and alienation…And Otis’ angelic voice…It gets you right away.I’ve listened it so many times and cried…This is indeed a great song. Log in to Reply a1957 2/11/2018 - 6:14 pm It is an amazing song. There are several other songs that made or even topped the charts with the public missing all that pain and isolation and lack of meaning of life. Hell, I missed it on this one. Log in to Reply Taf Taf 2/11/2018 - 6:24 pm Yes.I don’t know if you listen to funk,but there’s a song by Baby Huey called ”Hard Times” with the same theme as ”Sittin’ on the dock of the bay”.Although,it has a more upbeat rhythm.And Charles Bradley has some great songs.Funk,r’n’b,soul,and jazz musicians,in general,produced many great songs.

(Forgive the tangent). Log in to Reply Taf Taf 2/11/2018 - 6:43 pm What tangent?Don’t be silly,this isn’t a private conversation…Anyone can say what they want,even if they don’t like the song. Log in to Reply iceberg 2/11/2018 - 6:46 pm Tafx2: Thanks. Let’s whistle together. Log in to Reply Taf Taf 2/11/2018 - 6:53 pm Hahahaha Ok.Even though I don’t know to whistle by writing…Fee-uu,Fee-uu (I guess?) Anyway,thank you a1957 and iceberg,you made me feel better,just by talking to you.Thanks. Log in to Reply iceberg 2/11/2018 - 6:56 pm Likewise. Log in to Reply LMNO 2/11/2018 - 10:34 pm I drove a decent bit this weekend and found myself listening to the oldies station a lot, let’s just say 1968 predates me pretty good but there’s a few song otis redding gets me on. Good post. And iceberg, I assume you’re able to nail that whistle then? Log in to Reply iceberg 2/12/2018 - 8:49 pm LMNO: Blast from the past. Yeah. I can whistle. Log in to Reply LMNO 2/12/2018 - 10:32 pm Lol I don’t know what to think of that sentence. What pops into my head is the Lauren Bacall (which I had to google to learn the source) reference. …”you do Know how to whistle, don’t Ya. You just put your lips together and blow.. ” That’s not where i was goin at all lol Log in to Reply Leave a Comment Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.Subscribe to comments: Don't subscribe All Replies to my comments Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
