For my ears, this has to be among the very best recordings in the history of sound. Otis' voice is so emotive and plaintive. Steve Cropper's guitar is subtle, but omnipresent. It is simple and approachable, dramatic and relatable.

Brilliant song, but since when is being in the minority some sort of wrongdoing?
