Hi, I can’t see your name. Why?

Taf Taf 2/11/2018 - 1:02 pm

Hi Hulk.I posted this.I have no idea why it doesn’t show my name.

Are you sitting on the dock?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I remember this playing on the radio in ’69 as we were heading for the shore. My brother taught me how to whistle and I would practice to this song. (Forgive the tangent).

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.

Tafx2: Thanks. Let’s whistle together.

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.

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?

iceberg 2/12/2018 - 8:49 pm

LMNO: Blast from the past. Yeah. I can whistle.

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
