Otis Redding: Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay

Love Otis Redding and love this song, it always makes me think of me & my sisters sitting on the dock of the lake and singing this song! 💙

JoshWax ,

Fantastic!

Love Songs of Note! I didn’t grow up on the classics like so many others, so I always feel clueless when I’m around people talking about them. I love getting to know more about these older bands and I love that I get good suggestions of newer music as well. I almost ALWAYS love the recommendations.
