What Weeber said. My favourite singer of all time. The way he expresses every kind of emotion through his voice is astonishing. An incredible back catalogue to considering he passed away at 26. 5 all the way from me.
Absolutely love him. Probably not the strongest voice in terms of range but the character and warmth he brought is unparalleled. A massive lost to the world at only 26 years old.
Could have had ‘My lovers prayer’ or ‘I’ve been loving you etc’ as a favourite song but ‘Shake’ never fails to put a smile on my chops.
Just baffles me a bit. I know a couple of the songs you’ve listed up there, mainly because they’re on adverts or soundtracks. I didn’t realise there’s still a good proportion of people of my generation or thereabouts who actively listen to Otis Redding on the regular. Yesterday I was looking for something to listen to and ended up with Alien Ant Farm. But maybe I’m the weird one.
